Advocate for Increased Treatment
Incoming waste water can be treated to drinking water standards. The majority of this valuable resource is currently discharged into the ocean.
That's up to 3 million gallons a day that could be treated for use.
Currently, the district has a three-stage treatment. Customers contract to use tertiary treated water for landscape watering and toilet flushing. The water that isn't contracted is secondary treated and then discharged 1 mile into the ocean.
This under-utilized local supply of water can be processed with advanced treatments which can then be used as either direct or indirect reuse.
Working hand-in-hand with the Goleta Water District and collaboratively with environmental organizations will ensure successful strategic planning for a positive outcome.
