Water Reclamation Facility Goals

Morro Bay’s Water Reclamation Facility Community Goals, adopted by City Council in December 2013 and amended in February 2014, are:

  • Produce tertiary, disinfected wastewater in accordance with Title 22 requirements for unrestricted urban irrigation in a cost effective manner for all ratepayers.
  • Design to be able to produce reclaimed wastewater for potential users, which could include public and private landscape areas, agriculture, or groundwater recharge. A master reclamation plan should include a construction schedule and a plan for bringing on recycled water customers in a cost effective manner.
  • Allow for onsite composting.
  • Design for energy recovery.
  • Design to treat contaminants of emerging concern in the future.
  • Design to allow for other possible municipal functions, i.e. City Corporation Yard on site, as well as other uses such as public park and education center.
  • Ensure compatibility with neighboring land uses.
  • Have a new WRF operational prior to the expiration of the discharge permit for the existing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP), being five years more or less.
