Project News & Announcements
Water Campus Improvements Project Update
The Water Campus Improvements project broke ground in June 2020 and is currently in construction, with a November 2021 completion date. Site preparation, rough grading, and underground utility relocations are in progress.
The project includes a segment of the North Coast Bike Trail, and the bicycle/pedestrian path is currently in construction. In order to construct the multi-use path, a portion of the existing regional stormwater culvert will be undergrounded. All stormwater pipe associated with the undergrounding work is installed and on schedule to be completed in October, in preparation for winter rain events.
More information on the North Coast Bike Trail is available here.
Consideration of Solar Photovoltaic System
In our pursuit to protect the environment and manage future energy costs, San Elijo Joint Powers Authority is considering implementing a solar photovoltaic system to produce approximately 25% of the average daily electrical demand of the San Elijo Water Campus. The proposed project site is at 2695 Manchester Avenue, Cardiff by the Sea, 92007 and includes solar panels located on new carports and ground mount systems, as well as existing water treatment structures. The solar system is proposed to be financed and constructed using a power purchase agreement with IGS Solar, LLC. This project represents our commitment to the responsible use of natural resources and to California climate action goals.
San Elijo Joint Powers Authority will be considering this topic at its regularly scheduled Board Meeting on November 17, 2020.
