Water Campus Improvements Project
Water connects our community.
The proposed Water Campus Improvement Project will modernize our Water Reclamation Facility. The new facility will address administrative building needs including modernizing our laboratory facilities, enhanced physical and cyber security, and increased functionality and energy efficiency. True to our mission and values, and especially important, the new facility will promote a community connection to our wastewater treatment and recycled water treatment innovation. The new facility provides added public accessibility, an open trail system, and provides water education features for the community.
The project will feature interactive learning opportunities for students and the public to share. It will also include laboratory facility upgrades improving research opportunities. Contact us about our water treatment plant tours and current education opportunities.
The project will strongly embrace sustainable practices including a shift to locally produced photovoltaic solar power for onsite energy, all landscaping using recycled water, planting of shade trees and stormwater pollution protection, and electrical vehicle charging stations.
Public parking is estimated to be 31 parking stalls and is intended for SEJPA visitors, the multi-use path, and to provide overflow parking for the San Elijo Nature Center located across Manchester Avenue.
