WATER REUSE  

 

Board/executive management reuse strategy established 

 

Communications and outreach plan developed and implemented  

 

Ongoing market assessment of reused water to public/private and public/public entities 

 

Investments in reuse infrastructure   

 

Building code changes to enable reuse (e.g., reuse water code)  

Reuse off-site for irrigation, construction, industrial cooling, and toilet flushing.  

In-house quality testing and annual publication of recycled water quality information.  

Specialized reverse osmosis treatment for one industrial (up to 3.5 MGD) application.  

Ongoing study of recycled water corrosion impacts in cooling systems.  

Performance Measures & Results 

-

 

Offset East Bay's potable demand with recycling (20 MGD by 2040)  

o

 

Constructed infrastructure capable of delivering 9 MGD of recycled water  

o

 

Planned construction of new pumping station and pilot satellite recycling plant 
(additional 2-3 MGD of RW)  

-

 

Environmental benefits  

o

 

Reduced treated wastewater discharges to San Francisco Bay  

o

 

Helped maintain sensitive urban green space during the drought  

 

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.   

 

Watershed permitting strategy for multiple facilities (e.g., active nutrient water quality trading 
under a watershed-based permit)  

 

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

EBMUD Pollution Prevention programs help businesses, industries and residents reduce the discharge of 
pollutants to the community sewer and ultimately to San Francisco Bay.
