Inland Empire

The Inland Empire Chapter of the WateReuse Association was founded in May 2005 to support the ever-increasing focus on water recycling to supplement and diversify the Inland Empire region’s water supplies. Members of the Inland Empire Chapter include recycled water purveyors, recycled water customers, regulatory agencies, engineering and consulting firms, equipment vendors, as well as interested individuals from the community at large.


The mission of the Inland Empire Chapter of the WateReuse Association is to provide a forum to share information relative to recycled water projects at the local level.  Read our bylaws here.


The specific objectives of the Chapter are to:

  • Promote water recycling as a supplemental source of water and as a means to reduce discharges to waters in the Inland Empire area of Southern California;
  • Provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information on water recycling among people and organizations;
  • Work for the adoption of legislation and regulations that maximize the safe use of recycled water; and
