Why isn’t the City considering using the SSLOCSD plant as an alternative to this project?

This option was considered in previous studies, however, it was determined that this is not a viable option, as the SSLOCSD facility is in a floodplain and subject to risks associated with climate change and sea level rise. The Coastal Development Permit issued by the Coastal Commission for the facility’s redundancy project is only valid through 2047, and the entire facility will likely be required to relocate when the permit expires. Construction of a recycled water facility at the SSLOCSD would be difficult to permit and locate given site constraints, and subject to the same limited term. Consequently, it is not financially responsible to invest significant funds in a facility that will require relocation in a relatively short period of time.
