Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the East County Advanced Water Purification Project
This project is a partnership between the District, Helix Water District, County of San Diego, and City of El Cajon for the purpose of creating a new local, sustainable, and drought-proof water supply using state-of-the-art technology. The project proposes to recycle East San Diego County's wastewater locally and then purify the water at an Advanced Water Treatment Plant. The purified water would be transported to Lake Jennings for surface water augmentation. This water recycling opportunity would diversify the East County water supply and reduce the region's dependence on imported water. The project could produce up to 12,900 acre-feet per year, or 11.5 million gallons per day (mgd), of new local drinking water supply.

This project consists of re-plastering two existing swimming pools and pool deck refurbishment at the Santee Lakes Recreation Preserve campground.
