WateReuse California Supports $725 Million for Recycled Water in Water Bond

August 15, 2014

Sacramento, CA – WateReuse California applauds Governor Jerry Brown and the California Legislature for passing a revised water bond for the November 2014 ballot that contains significant funding for recycled water.

The “Water Quality, Supply, and Infrastructure Improvement Act” is a $7.54 billion bond measure that includes $725 million for recycled water projects and activities throughout California.

“At no time in California’s history has the use of recycled water been more important than it is today, especially while the state is suffering through one of the driest years ever recorded” said Mike Markus, President of WateReuse California and General Manager of Orange County Water District. “This significant commitment to recycled water will go far towards stretching California’s water supplies during this terrible drought.”

WateReuse California represents water recycling agencies and promotes the safe use of recycled water in communities as an expanding component of the State’s water supply portfolio.
