The City of San Diego's (City) Water Purification Demonstration Project (Demonstration Project) will evaluate the feasibility of using advanced treatment technology to produce water that can be sent to San Vicente Reservoir and later distributed as potable water. The Demonstration Project task includes: construction and operation of a one million gallons per day (mgd) advanced water purification facility at the North City Water Reclamation Plant; conduct a limnology study of the San Vicente Reservoir; convene an independent advisory panel to provide independent expert oversight of the Demonstration Project; define the state's regulatory requirements for a full-scale reservoir augmentation project; and conduct a public outreach and education program. The Demonstration Project is currently underway, and a summary project results will be presented in the Final Project Report in late 2012. This report will be submitted to the City Council, Mayor, and State Regulators for review and approval.
