The WateReuse Association welcomes the following new members:

Arizona: Tucson Water to Use Recycled Water to Revitalize Santa Cruz River

WateReuse Association member Tucson Water will begin this week releasing 2.8 million gallons of recycled water daily to improve conditions in the Santa Cruz River. This added water will bring perennial flow to a section of the river, fostering native vegetation and wildlife along with new recreational and economic opportunities. The project uses existing infrastructure to bring recycled water to the river for in-channel aquifer recharge and riparian habitat expansion. Read More.

California: Montecito Sanitary District’s Water Reuse Pilot Project to Start Soon

WateReuse Association member Montecito Sanitary District will soon begin operating a recycled water pilot project to test technology for its new reuse program. The pilot program will use a pulse-fed reverse osmosis system and may provide water for a neighboring cemetery. Once built, the full-scale facility will provide water for irrigation and groundwater recharge. Read more.
