The Metropolitan Biosolids Center (MBC) is the City’s regional biosolids facility that receives and processes solids from both the North City Water Reclamation Plant (NCWRP) and the Point Loma Wastewater Treatment Plant. The NCWRP will undergo an expansion, upgrades and improvements under Phase 1 of the Pure Water Program, increasing biosolids flows and loadings to MBC. To accommodate these increased loadings, upgrades and improvements at MBC are necessary.

Equipment on site will be replaced, and improvements will be made to several of the process areas, including the on-site pump station. Equipment replacements will be sequenced to allow the plant to remain in continuous operation during construction.
