As part of the PURE program to upgrade San Diego’s water treatment system, the City has awarded Shimmick a $357 million contract to construct the new North City Pure Water Facility. This new state-of-the-art facility will treat San Diego’s recycled water (currently used for irrigation) from the North City Water Reclamation Plant to purified water standards, making it suitable as a potable water source.

Shimmick will construct the new facility near the existing water reclamation plant, which, according to the City of San Diego, “will be one of the most advanced water purification plants in the world, and feature a state-of-the-art, five-step treatment process.”
