San Diego Opens Bids for Wastewater (Toilet-to-Tap) “Pure Water” Recycling Project


As reported by the Times of San Diego, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer Friday announced the city is seeking construction bids for the North City Pure Water Facility as the first of several bids for the Pure Water Program. The program is expected to deliver more than 1,000 green jobs aiding in the regional economic recovery effort. Bids for the project are due by October 1, 2020. “With the first bid for construction out, the city will soon be putting shovels in the ground to embark on what will be the most important infrastructure project in San Diego’s history,” Faulconer said. “Pure Water not only helps us leave a cleaner, greener city behind for our grandchildren but also helps ensure our water independence and economic security far into the future.”
