Why Water Reuse Matters

Adopting modern and ecological water reuse technologies has the potential to save up to 14 million-acre feet, 35% of current annual water use in California, the equivalent of the water used by all of California’s cities. This reduction in demand for new water would dramatically reduce the amount of energy used and thus also reduces the greenhouse gases (GHGs) emitted by California’s water-energy nexus.

Council Action Plan

Council members are working together to create an Action Plan with recommendations for policy change at the state, county and municipal level. Working groups are creating chapters on:

  • Blackwater
  • Composting Toilets
  • Greywater
  • Rain and Stormwater
  • Ground and Surface water
