Mission Valley chosen for water treatment plant

Planned Mission Valley Site

San Diego officials say a vacant 17-acre site in eastern Mission Valley is where they plan to build a large purification plant needed for phase two of the Pure Water sewage recycling system.

Construction of phase one, which includes a purification plant in western Miramar, began last year and is scheduled for completion in 2025.

The goal of the multibillion-dollar Pure Water system is to boost San Diego’s water independence by creating a local source and making the city and region less reliant on imported water.

City officials said the Mission Valley site was chosen for the phase two purification plant because it is vacant land owned by the city’s Public Utilities Department, and because an alternate city site considered in Liberty Station is too small.

The Mission Valley site is just north of Interstate 8, just east of Mission City Parkway and just south of IKEA and San Diego State’s new Mission Valley campus.

SDSU plans to build a large river park just north of the new Pure Water site. University officials say they plan to break ground on the river park later this year and complete the project in 2023.
