Coronado Sues to Control Navy Sewage

A lawsuit has been filed over who will provide sewage services for the Navy's new Coastal Campus. At issue is who is going to profit from the sewage system, sewage treatment and sale of recycled water, water that could potentially be used to water Coronado’s municipal golf course.

In Coronado, a dispute has erupted over who controls sewage from the island and who can profit from it.

At the heart of the tension is the Navy’s new campus on the southern end of Coronado. The 170-acre coastal facility will eventually house several thousand people from the Naval Special Warfare Command, including four teams of Navy SEALs. They will generate about 200,000 gallons per day of sewage.
