Western Recycled Water Coalition

The Coalition is a collaboration among cities, water and wastewater districts, and investor owned water utilities, pursuing highly leveraged, locally managed projects that will help ensure the security of water supplies in the western United States for years to come. Originally formed with seven agencies as the Bay Area Recycled Water Coalition, the group has now grown to 24 members, representing over 4 million people. Since 2009, the Coalition has secured over $38 M in Federal funding, which was leveraged with State and local funding to construct eight Coalition projects and to prepare feasibility studies for 14 new projects.

Recycled Water Projects National Survey, October 2013
The Western Recycled Water Coalition recently collaborated on a Nationwide Recycled Water Projects Survey with the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA), National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA), WateReuse Association, and California Association of Sanitation Agencies (CASA). The survey focused on identifying where projects are being developed over the next 10 years, the acre-feet per year of the planned projects, how much money has been invested, how much financial assistance has been received, and how much additional funding is needed for their construction. Gary W. Darling, General Manager for Delta Diablo Sanitation District, represented the Western Recycled Water Coalition at the December 3, 2013 ACWA national conference in Los Angeles to present the preliminary finds from the Survey.
