Recycled Water

In San Diego, water is too precious a resource to be used just once. To meet future water demands and avoid shortages, while reducing our dependence on imported water, the City of San Diego has built the North City Water Reclamation Plant and the South Bay Water Reclamation Plant. These plants treat wastewater to a level that is approved for irrigation, manufacturing and other non-drinking, or non-potable purposes. The North City Plant has the capability to treat 30 million gallons a day and the South Bay Plant can treat 15 million gallons a day. Recycled water, also referred to as reclaimed water, gives San Diego a dependable, year-round, locally controlled water resource. Using recycled water is cost-effective, reliable and good for the environment.

There are extensive rules and regulations regarding the use of recycled water. These include making sure all pipes, sprinkler heads, meter boxes, and other irrigation equipment are properly marked or color-coded purple and proper signage to distinguish them from potable water supplies. Landcare Logic and the Water Department will work with customers to ensure they are in compliance with all regulations.
