The Encina Water Pollution Control Facility (EWPCF) is a 43.3 million gallons per day (MGD) treatment plant and ocean outfall. Over the years, the plant has gone through several major expansions that have: increased the quality of treated water; improved odor control; added a cogeneration facility that generates electricity; upgraded the solids treatment process with a drier to produce a high-quality fertilizer product. EWA's long-term Capital Improvement Program ensures that the EWPCF is able to handle future growth and meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations.
EWA is owned by six public agencies and governed by a Joint Powers Authority UPA) that facilitates cost sharing and enables economies of scale the owners could not achieve independently. The JPA was founded in 1961 by the communities of Carlsbad and Vista, which formed a partnership for the purpose of building a joint facility to treat wastewater. Over the next decade, the agency was joined by the Buena Sanitation District, Vallecitos Water District, Leucadia Wastewater District and City of Encinitas.
