Is recycled water safe to use?

Yes! Recycled water is made by purifying wastewater. It is given additional disinfection and filtration processes that make it safe for irrigation. Recycled water is carefully monitored to protect public health and safety, and is strictly regulated by the local and state health departments and the Regional Water Quality Control Board. It is safely used at hundreds of parks, schools, greenbelts, agricultural operations, and golf courses throughout California. The recycled water pipeline system is completely separate from your drinking water system.
