As its climate changes, Northern California will likely experience more frequent and extreme droughts, punctuated by very wet years. More severe droughts could — but don’t have to — limit the region’s prosperity. Water recycling can stretch our region’s supply and allow for agricultural and industrial uses. A further step is purifying the water to drinking water standards. Valley Water is working on expanding water reuse by purifying highly treated wastewater that eventually can be incorporated into drinking water supplies. Join us on a tour of the Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center to learn how Valley Water is already producing drinking-water quality water and to discover how recycled and purified water fits into a sustainable future for a growing region.

This tour is co-presented by Sustainable Silicon Valley
