- La Jolla View Reservoir CDP/SDP
- The City of San Diego has prepared an Environmental Impact Report to evaluate the effects of the proposed La Jolla View Reservoir project. The project will require approval of a Coastal Development Permit and Site Development Permit for impacts to Environmentally Sensitive Lands. The project would replace the existing Exchange Place Reservoir and La Jolla View Reservoir with a new 3.1-million-gallon reservoir within the La Jolla Heights Natural Park. The existing reservoirs and the Exchange Place Pump Station would be demolished and their sites would be returned to historical contours and restored with native vegetation. The proposed new reservoir would be entirely buried, except for reservoir access hatches and supervisory control and data acquisition equipment. The new reservoir would include an approximately 200-foot-long, 18-inch overflow pipe with an at-grade outlet and energy dissipation structure. In addition, an 8-inch utility water connection to the new reservoir would be provided from the existing water main in Brodiaea Way. The project also includes construction of approximately 2,790 linear feet of 30-inch pipeline. The pipeline would run from the new La Jolla View Reservoir in a general east-to-west direction through the La Jolla Heights Natural Park to connect with the existing 16-inch Muirlands Pipeline in County Club Drive. Approximately 1,050 linear feet of the 2,790 linear feet total would be replacing the 16-inch pipeline up to the existing Muirlands Pump Station. In addition, approximately 780 feet of an 8-inch pipeline would parallel the 30-inch pipeline along Country Club Drive to serve existing customers. An altitude valve vault would be located along the pipeline adjacent to Country Club Drive. The existing pipeline segment through the La Jolla Heights Natural Park would be abandoned in place. An existing paved access road from Encelia Drive would be reconstructed to allow access to the new reservoir site for maintenance vehicles. This road would terminate at the reservoir access hatches where two parking spaces and paved turnaround area would be provided. The remaining portion of the existing access road to the existing La Jolla View Reservoir would be demolished, and the area would be revegetated.
