Los Gallinas Valley Sanitation District is one of the latest participants in California’s long history of using recycled water. California municipalities and agencies have been using treated recycled water — with no health-related incidents — since 1929 when the City of Pomona began using treated wastewater for landscape irrigation. Some 300 California facilities now produce recycled water for irrigation. Among them are Los Angeles County’s recycled water project, in operation since 1962, and the City of Irvine, operative since 1973. One of the largest recycled water projects in the United States is the reclamation system shared by the Cities of Cotati, Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, and Sebastopol, in which 4 billion gallons of water annually irrigates farms, vineyards and public landscaping, including school grounds.
