California Profile in Reuse

In 1918, the state of California developed the first water reuse regulations in the United States to help irrigate its booming agricultural sector. Since then, California has remained a global leader in water reuse. Today, California recycles over one million acre-feet of water each year to benefit people and the environment. That’s enough water savings to meet the indoor and outdoor needs of at least two million households! California communities are securing their water future by producing highly purified recycled water for drinking and recharging aquifers, as well as by expanding non-drinking water reuse for agriculture and irrigation, and recycling more water within buildings.
