With diminished rainfall, a depleted aquifer basin, near-empty recharge ponds, and an earthquake-vulnerable aqueduct system, the Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) in San Jose, CA, required additional water supplies to maintain regional economic vitality for its growing community.

The SCVWD Board of Directors determined that water reuse — taking treated wastewater, purifying it through an advanced treatment process, and distributing it for non-drinking purposes — would be critical to establishing a drought-proof, sustainable water supply for the region.
