The Interagency Partnerships for Water Reuse Workshop was convened to identify the tools and information that local elected officials and agency managers need to work together to expand the use of recycled water throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Goals and Objectives

The workshop enabled attendees to:

  • Learn why national and state leaders say recycled water is the key to a sustainable water supply;
  • Hear firsthand how some Bay Area cities have partnered to supply recycled water across jurisdictional boundaries; and
  • Identify the critical issues that local agencies must address to create workable recycled water partnerships.

Research Approach

The workshop was attended by 96 elected representatives and executive managers of city and county government and special districts throughout the nine-county Bay Area. Participation was provided at no cost, courtesy of grants from the Bay Area Clean Water Agencies (BACWA), Bay Area Water Forum (BAWF), member agencies, as well as the Bureau of Reclamation and the WateReuse Research Foundation.
