Project Overview

Morro Bay’s New Water Reclamation Facility


The City of Morro Bay Water Reclamation Facility Program is part of Our Water and involves replacing the City’s existing wastewater treatment plant with an advanced water purification facility that will meet state regulations, protect the environment, and contribute a safe and reliable water source for Morro Bay’s homes and businesses. The project will create a drought buffer and is capable of providing up to 80 percent of the City’s water needs in the future.

The project includes construction of a new one million gallon per day advanced treatment facility on South Bay Boulevard north of Highway 1, two new lift stations, approximately 3.5 miles of pipelines and wells to inject the purified water into the groundwater aquifer, which can be extracted for reuse through the City’s existing infrastructure. The current schedule includes construction beginning in 2019 and project completion by 2023.
