California: Valley Water Enters Partnership to Expand Water Recycling

WateReuse Association member Valley Water signed a 76-year agreement with the cities of Mountain View and Palo Alto to expand both potable and non-potable reuse in the region. The partnership will allow for the construction of a second, larger regional purification center that will provide advanced purified water for future drinking water supplies. The agreement also calls for the construction of a $20 million salt-removal plant to provide higher-quality non-potable recycled water, primarily for irrigation and cooling towers. Read More.

Engaging the Public Health Community on Water Reuse? Check out Our Online Resources

Although water reuse is a proven, science-based process that has been used safely in communities around the world for decades, the public is often skeptical when the concept is first introduced into a community. To build acceptance among medical and health professionals, WateReuse has launched the Medical Community Initiative and begun developing resources to support members in engaging with the public health community. Visit our website for videos, articles, and presentations that support engagement with medical professionals. New tools are being developed so check back for updates.

Join WateReuse California’s Agricultural Reuse Committee to learn about agricultural water reuse in production, planned projects, and new opportunities. An expert panel of agricultural reuse practitioners will share their experiences, lessons learned, and outlook for agriculture reuse in California. Following the panel, the audience will be encouraged to submit questions for a moderated Q&A.  Agricultural reuse refers to recycled water used in an agricultural setting. Water is treated and used again, employing effective and efficient processes to meet specific quality standards for the intended end use. Water that is treated and cleaned for agricultural reuse includes municipal wastewater, wastewater from plants that process agricultural products, and runoff from fields after irrigation (also known as tailwater).
