California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo Water Reclamation Facility Project
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (Cal Poly) is proposing to construct and operate an on-campus water reclamation facility (WRF) and
recycled water storage and distribution system to produce and deliver disinfected tertiary recycled water meeting the requirements of Title 22 of the California Code
of Regulations for unrestricted reuse, including safe application to agricultural crops, pastures, and recreation fields on campus. The nonpotable water demands of
the campus that are currently met via untreated water from Whale Rock Reservoir (approximately 15 miles to the northwest) would be transitioned over time to
nonpotable recycled water supplied by the on-campus WRF. The campus would then use the Whale Rock Reservoir water freed up by operation of the WRF to meet
future potable water demand associated with campus growth proposed under the Campus Master Plan. Cal Poly would continue to pump groundwater for
agricultural purposes. Nonpotable water demands associated with agriculture are not anticipated to increase with implementation of the Campus Master Plan.
