City Council Approves $6 Contract For Recycled Wastewater Project

The city council in San Diego authorized a $6 million contract with a construction and engineering firm to build a facility to test the feasibility of using recycled wastewater to supplement San Diego's drinking water supply. The project is a small-scale test of the technology used to treat wastewater to a level where it can safely be used to augment San Diego's reservoirs. The results will be used to determine whether the city ultimately moves ahead with IPR and to secure the required health permits from the state. The total cost of the project is $11.8 million which was previously funded. The city council says the amount of water saved by the city will be neglibiblr.
