Encinitas Ranch Recycled Water Project

A San Elijo Joint Powers Authority Led Project

The Encinitas Ranch Recycled Water Project is brining locally produced recycled water to irrigate the community’s  shared landscaping, parks, and trails. The project eliminates the need to use potable water for irrigation, providing a drought-resistant and cost-effective water source to maintain and enhance common areas, even in times of drought.

This project was primarily funded by a grant from the State of California and by SEJPA, with contributions from Encinitas Ranch Community Association, Fox Point Farms, and the City of Encinitas.

Drought Resistant

Local, Safe & Sustainable
