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.

Soquel Creek Water District Chosen as a Recipient for a Federal Low-Interest Loan of $49 Million for its Pure Water Soquel Project

The Soquel Creek Water District was chosen by the US Environmental Protection Agency to submit an application for a $49 million low-interest loan through its Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA) loan program. The funds will be used toward design and construction of the District’s Pure Water Soquel Groundwater Replenishment and Seawater Intrusion Prevention Project.
