The Inland Empire Brine Line (Brine Line) is a gravity pipeline that delivers non-reclaimable waste from the Santa Ana River watershed upstream of Orange County to a treatment plant in Orange County owned and operated by Orange County Sanitation District. Various water agencies throughout the watershed purchased capacity in the Brine Line to fund its construction.

If you are an industry that desires to locate in the Upper Santa Ana River watershed, San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District will work with you to facilitate the purchase of both 1) pipeline capacity and 2) treatment capacity. Once you have purchased capacity in the system, you will also be responsible for paying both fixed charges (regardless of flow) and variable charges (based on flow). Additional information including an application for service and the estimated costs can be found here.
