Pure Water: Construction of sewage recycling pipeline expected to disrupt University City and other neighborhoods this summer and fall


From the San Diego Union Tribune: Neighborhoods across northern San Diego will be disrupted by tunneling and pipeline construction this summer when work kicks into high gear on Pure Water, the largest infrastructure project in city history. Pure Water is a sewage recycling system that aims to boost local water independence in the face of more severe droughts caused by climate change. When complete in 2035, it is projected to produce half the city’s drinking water.

The city has also posted an interactive map at https://www.sandiego.gov/public-utilities/sustainability/pure-water-sd that will be regularly updated with construction areas, road closures and detours. In addition, web pages and fact sheets have been created for each construction project. Contractors are required to update properties within 500 feet of construction with door hangers. And the city has created three hotlines for affected neighborhoods: one for Morena and Clairemont, one for University City (, and one for Miramar and Scripps Ranch.
