Use of in-house laboratories for testing water quality parameters.  

Performance Measures & Results 

-

 

Percent increase in recycled water deliveries from FY 14-15 to FY 15-16 10.39% increase  

-

 

Number of customers served with recycled water 39 metered connections for landscape 
irrigation, 6 construction water sources

Impact of the Recycled Water Production Analysis Improvements and the WRRF Project on 
recycled water production Recycled water production and delivery is expected to increase 
significantly.  

-

 

Planned use of advanced treatment - Pending potable reuse in the form of groundwater 
recharge and direct potable reuse, advanced treatment will likely be used to create a drought-
tolerant source of drinking water for the City.  

-

 

Planned UV disinfection system--UV disinfection will used to treat all water in the WRRF post-
upgrades. Chlorine will no longer be used to treat plant effluent. This reduced the potential for 
THM production and keeps them out of the watershed.

WATERSHED STEWARDSHIP  

 

Unified vision statement established that integrates water supply, water conservation, water 
recycling, runoff management, wastewater facilities planning, and infrastructure planning using 
a regional watershed approach.   

 

Green infrastructure deployment to enhance infiltration, evapotranspiration, treatment, or 
capture and reuse of stormwater  

 

Ecosystem enhancements for improved hydraulics or water quality, including:  

o

 

Riparian reforestation to enhance pollution mitigation functions 

o

 

Stream channel restoration for increased hydrologic stability   

o

 

Critical land acquisitions (e.g., conservation easements, buffer-zone purchases)   

 

Climate impact resilience principles incorporated into planning for new, repair, and replacement 
of infrastructure.   

The WRRF Project will result in San Luis Obispo Creek water quality improvement through treatment 
upgrades and an improved effluent water quality.  

Systems that add value to the urban landscape with resilient, adaptable, affordable, and 
environmentally sensitive water infrastructure that continues to provide basic services, but also 
enhanced recreational, aesthetic and environmental value – the WRRF Project Cooling Wetlands.
