The District is continuing its commitment to environmental sustainability and resilience when it comes to protecting our groundwater basins and increasing our local water supplies so we are less reliant on imported water sources. Using recycled water is good for our environment. The more recycled water we use, the less we have to take out of rivers and streams and groundwater basins. We need to consider all options to ensure a reliable and locally controlled supply for ourselves and future generations.
The Expedited Purified Water Program will provide a new safe, high quality and drought-proof water supply for Santa Clara County. Purified water is a component of the region’s water supply portfolio to ensure continued economic health and our quality.
