SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego City Council Tuesday will consider whether to fund a study to see if groundwater below Chollas Creek and the San Pasqual Valley can be developed into drinking water.
The two-year, $2 million study - if approved - will be conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey, which would drill a pair of monitoring wells in each location to test for water quality. The city would be on the hook for nearly $1.8 million of the cost, and the federal government will pick up the rest.
The city in 2002 established a goal to develop additional sources of water so that the region will not be as dependent on imports.
