The City of San Clemente’s recycled water expansion facility project is complete and the community is invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, September 18, 2014. The ceremony is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. at the City’s water treatment facility located at 380 East Avenida Pico.
This project represents one of the biggest public works projects in the City’s history. The project cost a total of $25.1 million from multiple funding sources, including $6 million in grant funding, and is intended to more than double the amount of recycled water produced at the plant. Prior to completion, the treatment plant produced up to 2.2 million gallons of recycled water per day and now the City will more than double capacity to 5 million gallons per day. The recycled water is a byproduct of raw sewage though as a result of the filtration process recycling water is produced, rendering it safe for irrigating golf courses, homeowners associations’ greenbelts, medians and City parks.
“The completion of this project could not have been timelier considering the state’s severe drought that is affecting all of us,” said Mayor Tim Brown. “We will be able to reduce San Clemente’s reliance on imported water as this will make up 8 percent of the City’s total water supply going forward”.
