Is recycled water safe?
Yes. Recycled water must meet stringent regulatory requirements monitored by the State
Department of Health Services and be treated to the State of California Title 22 standards for tertiary (advanced) treatment of water. It must also meet regional and local standards. Wastewater is treated to these rigid standards to ensure that public health and environmental quality are protected. The Town's recycled water is monitored and tested daily to ensure that it consistently meets these high quality standards.
