The Morena Pump Station, Morena Pipelines Southern Alignment, and Morena Pipelines Middle Alignment will be constructed in the Bay Park, Bay Ho, Morena and Clairemont communities of San Diego. The Morena Pump Station will divert wastewater to the North City facilities that would otherwise be treated and discharged into the ocean. The Morena Pipelines include two 10.5-mile pipelines: one wastewater pipeline, which will carry wastewater north to the North City facilities for purification, and one brine line that will carry the biproduct from water purification south to the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Morena Pump Station
Project Started:June 2021Expected Completion:2025
The Morena Pump Station will divert an average of 32 million gallons per day (mgd) of wastewater through the Morena Pipeline to the North City Water Reclamation Plant for treatment and the Pure Water Facility for purification. The pump station will be constructed at the southwest corner of Sherman and Custer Streets off Morena Boulevard and just north of Interstate 8. This project includes ongoing work on Friars Road between Napa Street and Sea World Drive.
The Morena Conveyance South & Middle and Morena Conveyance Bike Lanes project will connect the Morena Pump Station at Sherman and Custer Streets in Bay Park with the Morena Pipelines Northern Alignment in University City, via Clairemont Dr. in Bay Park and Bay Ho.
