Water Recycled

Water Recycled

Overview

Definition

This service level reflects the amount of tertiary-treated wastewater that is used for beneficial purposes, such as irrigation, instead of being discharged to the Sacramento River.

Target

The target for this service level is to recycle enough water to irrigate between 200 and 300 acres per year.

Purpose

This service level represents our commitment to environmental stewardship and enhancing the water supply through water recycling.

Critical Impacts

The amount of water recycling is highly dependent on planning and implementing water recycling projects. This includes selecting projects; mobilizing support for projects; formalizing partnerships and agreements to support projects; permitting; acquiring financing; and designing and constructing new facilities. In the short term, the amount of water recycled is driven by the recycled water demand and operation of the existing treatment facilities.
