The Cities of South San Francisco and San Bruno, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), and California Water Service Company (CalWater) are jointly pursuing a project to produce and distribute recycled water in the South San Francisco and San Bruno area. Recycled Water would be produced at the South San Francisco/San Bruno Water Quality Control Plant located in South San Francisco.
The purpose of the project is to reduce consumption of surface,
imported, and potable water and reduce local groundwater pumping. The
project would also reduce wastewater discharges to San Francisco Bay.
Diversifying the area’s water supply portfolio through the use of
available local water sources such as recycled water would ensure that a
reliable water supply is available in the even of a major earthquake,
drought, or a decline in the snow pack.
