|What Wasn’t Known|
|A long-awaited blueprint for wastewater recycling answers big questions: How much it will cost San Diego to recycle sewage, where purification facilities should be built and how much sewage could be diverted from the city’s major treatment plant in Point Loma.|
|What This Study Shows|
|San Diego has major opportunities to expand its sewage reuse, largely by purifying sewage to boost drinking water supplies. That would help cut the amount of sewage dumped in the ocean by half in coming decades.|
|San Diego is under pressure from environmentalists and the U.S. EPA to expand sewage reuse and will have to show progress before applying for another waiver of federal pollution rules at the Point Loma plant. The current waiver expires in 2015.|
