Water Campus Improvements Project Update
Date: June 08, 2021
Construction of the Water Campus Improvements project broke ground in June 2020 and has progressed well during the pandemic, with an estimated completion in October 2021. Site preparation, grading, and underground utility relocations have been completed. The new operations and administration building is nearing completion and work will begin shortly on the planned traffic signal and pedestrian crossing located between the SEJPA Water Campus and San Elijo Nature Center.
The project also includes a segment of the North Coast Bike Trail, and this multi-use path is currently in construction. The multi-use path opening will be coordinated with Caltrans and is expected in early 2022.
More information on the North Coast Bike Trail is available here.
Solar Photovoltaic System Update
Date: May 28, 2021
In December 2020, the SEJPA Board of Directors approved a power purchase agreement with REC Solar to implement a solar PV project that will produce approximately 610 kilowatts (kW) of solar power, or approximately 25% of the average daily demand of the Water Campus. The project includes a combination of rooftop, carport, and ground-mounted solar arrays for an estimated capital cost of $2.0 million. The project is currently in the design and permitting phase, with an expected construction start in Fall 2021.
