Recycled Water D-4 Reservoir

The City of Carlsbad is working to complete the third phase of its recycled water program, a critical step for conservation and sustainability. An important program component includes a new recycled water storage reservoir on a portion of a 4.5-acre Carlsbad Municipal Water District-owned property south of Poinsettia Lane, north of New Crest Court and east of Black Rail Road. A city reservoir site for nearly 40 years, it currently includes a recycled water pump station and three existing water reservoirs.

  • 85.5 feet in diameter
  • 40 feet high
  • Similar in size to existing smaller tanks on-site
  • Location APN 215-081-16-00

What’s Next

Expected to occur early next year, the City of Carlsbad Planning Commission and Council will review a city application for a conditional use (CUP 2020-0003) and coastal development permit (CDP 2020-021) to construct the new reservoir, which was studied and approved under the recycled water program. Project hearings will be publicly noticed. Construction timing will be firmed up following public hearings.
