A major expansion of the Miramar Water Treatment Plant near Scripps Ranch is scheduled to be one of the city’s largest infrastructure projects in 2016, according to city officials.
The project, estimated at $114 million in costs, will provide six million gallons of space for water storage at the plant located on 10710 Scripps Lake Drive, said officials.
Officials say the project will include a megawatt solar system, construction of a chlorine contact chamber and a maintenance building.
Two clear wells, which are temporary water storage tanks, will be replaced and expanded for the project. City officials expect construction to be completed in 2020.
