San Diego accelerates new water supply

San Diego’s landmark water recycling system took several key steps forward this week when the City Council approved an accelerated timeline and a comprehensive environmental analysis. The council also approved $52 million in projects to kick start the program, and endorsed plans to use methane from the Miramar landfill as a power source for water purification, making the process more environmentally friendly. Leaders from several communities in the region that share San Diego’s sewer system complained that accelerating the $3 billion program will unfairly increase sewer rates for them more quickly than expected.
