Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (WIFIA)

Buccaneer Sewer Lift Station and Force Main Project

Borrower: City of Oceanside
Location: Oceanside, California
Invited WIFIA Loan Amount: $47 million
Population Served by Project: 180,000

Project Type: Water Recycling

Project Description

The Buccaneer Sewer Lift Station and Force Main Project will optimize and enhance the City's wastewater system by redirecting sewage flows from the aging La Salina Wastewater Treatment Plant to the existing San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility for treatment and injection into the Mission Groundwater Basin. The purpose of the project is to increase the local production of potable and recycled water to enhance supply reliability and reduce imported water purchases. The additional flows will support the production of up to 6,720 acre feet per year (AFY) of full advanced treated water that will be injected into the basin. Also, the increased flows will increase the amount of digester gas produced that is converted to electricity and heat for use at the plant.
