WateReuse California Recycled Water Agency of the Year - Small 

May contain: postage stamp

To mitigate the impacts of severe regional drought, West Bay Sanitary District partnered with Sharon Heights Golf Club to construct a satellite recycled water treatment facility at the club’s property in Menlo Park, California. Wastewater diverted to the plant is treated and used to irrigate the golf course, preserving as much as 400,000 gallons of potable water each day. This makes a huge difference for residents enduring a seemingly endless cycle of drought and water restrictions. Insights garnered through the project’s execution and operation have helped the West Bay Sanitary District establish a strong proof of concept for additional recycled water projects. The District has already begun to identify opportunities for expansion throughout the city, including a second facility in Bedwell Bayfront Park.
