Reclaimed water is a product of treated wastewater collected from your homes, businesses, and the by-product water from the city's reverse osmosis water treatment plant. The wastewater flows through sewer mains and pumping stations within in the city's service area to the city owned and operated advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility.
This facility operates 365 days a year, 24-hours a day, and is operated by technically skilled operators, mechanics, and electricians committed to providing city customers with superior reclaimed water quality. There, the wastewater moves through numerous treatment processes to remove odor, oils and grease, organic matter, solids, nitrogen, phosphorus, metals, bacteria and other contaminants.
The resulting reclaimed water meets all state standards for use as landscape irrigation water. Reclaimed water is then pumped to customers and to four storage tanks located throughout the city.
