The San Diego region has a fairly dry climate. We receive, on average, only 11 inches of rain a year. To support the growing economy and population of our region, the Water Authority needs to import water from hundreds of miles away. We are working to ensure that water continues to be available. But we also need to enhance local supplies.

One possible option is using advanced treatment methods to turn treated wastewater into drinking water. There are proven ways to treat it that mimic nature's processes and ensure this water is as pure or more pure than existing supplies.

This video will show you why and how this is accomplished. If you enjoy it, please share it with your friends, family, and social networks.
