Salt Creek Interceptor Gravity Sewer Interceptor

The Salt Creek Sewer Basin encompasses a significant portion of the developed and developing eastern part of the City of Chula Vista, California. Portions of the Otay River Valley, as well as portions of the unincorporated area north and east of Otay Lakes Road are tributary to the Salt Creek Sewer Basin. Furthermore, the Salt Creek Sewer Basin also encompasses a smaller sewer shed known as the Wolf Canyon Sewer Basin. Chula Vista needed to provide sewerage facilities and service to these large tracts of land. This resulted in a series of studies that explored a variety of available options. Option 1 included a water reclamation plant. However, this option was not considered feasible. Option 2 included a gravity sewer line. Chula Vista explored the feasibility of constructing a gravity sewer line to convey the flows generated within the basin to the west side of the city. An alignment study was performed, which was ultimately adopted and formed the basis of the design for the Salt Creek Gravity Sewer Interceptor. This report contains information on the project background, environmental challenges, and engineering solutions.
