WHAT IS RECYCLED WATER?
Recycled water is wastewater treated through multiple processes to a tertiary level that meets California Department of Public Health quality and safety standards. Since 2002, the District has delivered about 530 million gallons of recycled water to customers, an amount equivalent to about a year’s worth of water used by the entire system, which serves 4,000 accounts.
