Soquel Creek Water District Awarded $50 Million Prop 1 State Grant for Pure Water Soquel

The Soquel Creek Water District is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a State Proposition 1 Groundwater Implementation Grant in the amount of $50 million, for its Pure Water Soquel Groundwater Replenishment and Seawater Intrusion Prevention Project. The award was unanimously made at today’s State Water Resources Control Board meeting in Sacramento. 

Court Rules in Favor of Pure Water Soquel Project

Yesterday, Superior Court Judge Timothy J. Schmal in Santa Cruz County ruled in favor of the Soquel Creek Water District on all elements of a legal action brought against the District earlier this year. The legal action alleged insufficiencies in the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Pure Water Soquel Groundwater Replenishment and Seawater Intrusion Prevention Project. The District’s Board of Directors certified the EIR and approved the project on December 18, 2018.

Water Main Flushing to Begin in Early November

To maintain the highest water quality, Soquel Creek Water District crews will be flushing water mains in early November in areas of Soquel to prepare for purchasing drinking water (treated surface water) from the City of Santa Cruz Water Department. 

Because not all areas can be flushed with the zero-discharge NO-DES flushing truck, traditional flushing will be performed in some areas.  You may notice water running down the street while flushing.  While this may seem like water waste, it is essential to maintaining high quality water for our customers.
