The Surfrider Foundation, Biocom and San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring a forum Wednesday night at 5:30 p.m. to talk about the future of sewage recycling as a drinking water source in San Diego.
Speakers at the forum, dubbed Suits and Surfers: An Uncommon Alliance for a Common Goal, will include Philip L. Anthony, director of the Orange County Water District; Mike Markus, general manager of the Orange County Water District; and Jeff Mosher, executive director of the National Water Research Institute.
And if that’s not enough to grab your attention, I’ll be moderating. No, I will not be wearing a tie and a wetsuit.
San Diego City Council has been pushing forward with a pilot project that would treat and recycle sewage and use the filtered end product to fill the San Vicente Reservoir. The council is scheduled in November to consider a temporary water rate increase to fund the $11.8 million demonstration project.
The event starts at 5:30 p.m. at Biocom headquarters at 4510 Executive Drive in University Towne Center.
