Purple Treated Wastewater Irrigation Pipeline at Sea Pines Golf Resort

Valve Turning Ceremony for the Sea Pines Golf Resort Recycled Water Connection

Author: Public Works

The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Public Works invites the public to celebrate the completion of the first recycled water connection from the Los Osos Water Recycling Facility to Sea Pines Golf Resort.

Please join us for a Valve Turning Ceremony on Tuesday, August 27, 2019, at 10:00 a.m., at Sea Pines Golf Resort at the intersection of Glenn Street and Howard Avenue in Los Osos.  See attached map for specific location. Light refreshments will be served.

The Los Osos Water Recycling Facility was designed to deliver highly treated wastewater for irrigation and other purposes to promote sustainability within the Los Osos Groundwater Basin. Sea Pines Golf Resort is the first location to receive recycled water for irrigation use since the recycling facility began operation in 2016. The recycled water the resort receives supplements up to 200,000 gallons of groundwater per day; water which would otherwise be pumped from the Los Osos aquifer.

Additional recycled water connections are planned for other high demand users. 

“I am really excited to see recycled water from the Los Osos Wastewater plant put to great use on the golf course.  I look forward to other users joining this effort in the near future,” said 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson.
