Desalination workshops

Post Date:09/18/2015 9:51 AM

Sunset on oceanVallecitos will be hosting two workshops to provide information on the Carlsbad Desalination Project and how this new local water source may affect Vallecitos customers.   

The workshops will be held on:

  • October 6, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.
  • November 2, 2015, at 6:00 p.m.

Both workshops are identical and will take place in the District’s Boardroom, located at 201 Vallecitos De Oro in San Marcos.

Presenters will provide information on the Carlsbad Desalination Plant’s infrastructure and will address water quality, taste and aroma changes. Following the presentations, time will be allotted for attendees to comment and ask questions.

The Desalination Plant is scheduled to come on line in November 2015, providing Vallecitos customers with over 4,000 acre feet (1 acre foot equals 325,851 gallons) of water annually. Vallecitos will see up to 27 percent of its long-term annual supplies drawn from local sources, easing reliance on imported supplies and providing the District with an increased level of sustainability.
