California Water Policy Conference Special Tour
Pure Water San
Friday, April 7, 2017, 12:30 – 4:30 pm
With little rain and limited local water supplies, San Diego depends on importing 85 percent of its water from the Colorado River and Northern California. Rising imported water costs, population growth and the ongoing drought threaten San Diego’s water reliability. To address these challenges, the City of San Diego is moving forward with Pure Water San Diego, a phased, multi-year program that will provide 1/3 of San Diego’s water supply locally by 2035.
In an introductory presentation, guests will learn about San Diego’s water supply challenges and how water purification can provide a reliable, sustainable and cost-effective drinking water supply for San Diego. Guests will then take a guided walking tour through the demonstration Pure Water Facility, where proven technology is used to clean recycled water to produce safe, high-quality drinking water through ozonation, biological activated carbon, membrane filtration, reverse osmosis and advanced oxidation with ultraviolet light.
Tour participants will see the equipment and resulting purified water up close and have an opportunity to compare samples of purified, tap, bottled and recycled water. Finally, participants are offered to taste a sample of the purified water produced by the facility.
The tour bus will leave the Courtyard by Marriott at Liberty Station when the conference adjourns at approximately 12:30 pm on Friday, April 7. A box lunch will be provided on the bus as you are transported to the Pure Water San Diego Facility. The tour group will leave the Pure Water Facility no later than 3:00 pm. The bus will then stop at the San Diego Airport no later than 4:00 pm to drop off any attendees who have flights to catch and will return to the Courtyard by Marriott at Liberty Station no later than 4:30 pm. The cost of the tour includes transportation to and from the Pure Water San Diego Facility, the tour and a box lunch.
Your can sign up for the tour when you register for the conference. The tour will occur rain or shine and space is limited. Please join us!
