The Pacifica Recycled Water Project replaces drinking water with recycled water to meet the irrigation needs of Sharp Park Golf Course and other landscaped areas in the City of Pacifica. The North Coast County Water District and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission have partnered to construct the Pacifica Recycled Water Project. When completed, approximately 50 million gallons of recycled water will be delivered annually.
The project includes:
Distribution: A new pump station at the existing Calera Creek Water Recycling Plant in Pacifica, and approximately 17,000 feet of distribution pipelines to deliver recycled water to users.
Storage: A new 400,000 gallon above-ground recycled water storage tank along Gypsy Hill Road.
The use of recycled water for this project will reduce the San Francisco Regional Water System’s dependency of a single source of water, decrease demand on surface water, provide a drought-resistant water source, and decrease wastewater discharges to the Pacific Ocean.
