Cooperative Agreement in Support of Pure Water San Diego

In 2014, the City of San Diego entered into a Cooperative Agreement with San Diego Coastkeeper, San Diego County Surfrider Foundation, Coastal Environmental Rights Foundation, and San Diego Audubon Society for purposes of supporting and implementing Pure Water San Diego and achieving secondary equivalency at the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant.
