Semiahmoo Resort will partially switch to reclaimed water for its golf course this summer.

A $1 million centennial clean water grant from the state department of ecology that was awarded to the city’s wastewater conveyance project will partially pay for the piping from the water treatment facility to the golf course.

Assistant public works director Bill Bullock said the pipes will pump 250,000 to 300,000 gallons of water daily, providing nearly half the irrigation the golf course requires.

Bullock said the city is running tests this week and hopes to have the new supply available by the end of June.
