San Diego’s Safe, Sound and Sustainable Recycled Water

In San Diego, recycled water has become a resourceful and useful means of local water supply. The recycled water is used to irrigate fairgrounds, golf courses, parks, as well as school properties. Recently, the Reclamation system was upgraded to include an additional reservoir, as well as more distribution pipelines. The advanced water treatment system has greatly improved the city’s recycled water quality. Additionally, the recycled water salinity levels have been significantly reduced, which is a major benefit for homeowners using the water for irrigation. The arid San Diego area relies heavily on water imported from the Colorado River and Northern California. Recycled water is a constructive way to help the community conserve water. The city has also experimented with capturing urban runoff to protect beaches and lagoons, then redirecting that water to the sewer system for treatment and reuse. Water conservation will remain an important priority for San Diego neighborhoods. Because of this, the city has reinvented the mainstream car washing method by using technology which recycles water and filters it for future use. This technique will save up to three-quarters of the water that patrons would normally use at home. A typical at-home car wash uses approximately 140 gallons of water. Furthermore, the water used at home drains directly into local waterways, along with the chemicals in the water. The water that is not recycled at a public car wash is sent to the sewer system for further processing, safeguarding the waterways and local wildlife from contaminants. San Diego, you’re invited!!
