Future of water on public display for
San Diego's Water Purification Demonstration Project
by Marsi A. Steirer, Water Purification Demonstration Project Director,
City of San Diego, Public Utilities Department

Visitors are encouraged to tour the City of San Diego's AWP Facility. Guests gain a better understanding of the Demonstration Project and what role the AWP Facility plays in the testing phase. Following an introductory presentation, tour participants walk through the facility to view the water purification technology equipment up close. At the end of the tour, guests view the purified water produced at the facility and have a chance to visually compare it to drinking water and recycled water samples.

Register for a tour at www.purewatersd.org/tours.shtml.  A virtual tour of the AWP Facility is also available online at www.purewatersd.org. To request a Demonstration Project presentation for an organization, email purewatersd@sandiego.gov or call (619) 533-6638. For more information about the City of San Diego's Water Purification Demonstration Project, visit www.purewatersd.org, email purewatersd@sandiego.gov,  or call (619)533-7572.

What is scavenging and how can I report it?

Photo of automatic trash can Scavenging is the act of unauthorized persons going through recycling or refuse containers, whether the containers are located on City or private property.

Like illegal dumping, scavenging is a crime in San Diego, and it is taken very seriously by the City.

Every year, scavengers steal thousands of dollars in recyclables from the City's curbside program, which makes the program less cost efficient and ultimately costs taxpayers. To help keep scavengers from taking your recyclables, place your container out at 7 a.m. in the morning, just before collection, rather than the night before.

To help stop this crime, the City encourages anyone who encounters a scavenging incident that has already taken place to report it. If you observe someone scavenging, please take down the following information:

  • Date, time and location of incident
  • Description of vehicle and license plate number
  • Description of person(s) scavenging
  • What items/materials were being scavenged
  • Your name and phone number (optional)

Report the information to the following agencies:

To report scavenging, please submit a Trash/Litter/Recycling Service Request or contact the Environmental Services Department at 858-694-7000 Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Contact your city representative, Gary Warren, GWarren@SanDiego.gov 

With adequate information and an eyewitness who is willing to testify, the City can and will pursue prosecution.

Capital Improvement Program FY2013

In an unprecedented move, the Mayor's Office is inviting the public to participate in development of the FY2014 (July 2013 - June 2014) Capital Improvement Program budget through recognized community planning groups. Previously, the public could not provide input until the draft budget was published on April 15. This year the public is encouraged to suggest projects (studies, design, construction) before city staff starts work in December.
