The Morena Pump Station, Morena Pipelines Southern Alignment, and Morena Pipelines Middle Alignment will be constructed in the Bay Park, 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.
Project Started: June 2021 Expected 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.
Expected Start: Mid-2022 Expected Completion: 2024
The Morena Pipelines Southern Alignment begins at the Morena Pump Station at Sherman Street and Custer Street and continues north on Morena Boulevard, Milton Street, Chicago Street and Denver Street to Clairemont Drive.
Expected Start: 2022 Expected Completion: 2024
The Morena Pipelines Middle Alignment will connect the Southern Alignment in Bay Park and the Northern Alignment and Tunnels in University City. The Middle Alignment begins on Clairemont Drive at Iroquois Avenue and continues north to Genesee Avenue between Appleton Street and State Route 52.
