SDUT: re Pure Water, San Diego signs first-ever ‘project labor’ deal to help revive stalled $5B project

As published by the San Diego Union Tribune on July 31: “The pact, plus recent court victory, prompt city to resume soliciting bids for long-awaited sewage recycling system. San Diego officials have agreed to the first “project labor agreement” in city history to help resolve legal challenges that have stalled Pure Water, a $5 billion sewage recycling system that would produce one-third of the city’s water.”

“The new agreement and a favorable court ruling last week have made city officials confident enough to solicit construction bids for Pure Water projects starting next Friday. The PLA allows both union and non-union contractors to submit bids.”
