Pure Water Oceanside Presentation Summary

Pure Water Oceanside (Project) is an indirect potable reuse (IPR) groundwater augmentation project located in the City of Oceanside (City) in San Diego County, CA.  In several phases, the Project aims to recharge the Mission Groundwater Basin (MGB) with between 4.5 and 6 million gallons per day (MGD) of advanced treated water from the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility (SLRWRF), which will enable production of up to 30% of the City’s water supply from the Mission Basin Groundwater Purification Facility (MBGPF) by 2030.  Phase I of the Project, which is estimated to cost $75 million, will inject 3.0 MGD of advanced treated water into the MGB and includes construction of (1) an advanced water purification facility (AWPF) at the SLRWRF – including microfiltration (MF), reverse osmosis (RO), and ultraviolet (UV) advanced oxidation process (AOP), (2) pumping and conveyance facilities, (3) injection wells, and (4) monitoring wells over four separate construction contracts.  The City anticipates completing all construction and delivering water into the MGB by December 2021 to qualify Pure Water Oceanside as an existing facility pursuant to SB606.  To meet this schedule, the City has completed major milestones including but not limited to a feasibility study, a pathogen removal study, hydrogeological validation, environmental documentation, preliminary permitting, final design of critical path infrastructure, financing, and construction contracting.  Obstacles encountered included lack of information about the groundwater basin, regulatory uncertainty, permitting constraints, environmental/cultural constraints, schedule concerns, and funding needs.  This presentation will provide an overview of Pure Water Oceanside to date, including a discussion of obstacles encountered and solutions weighed and chosen for each obstacle.
