How long has recycled water been in use?
Recycled water systems have been operating in California and throughout the nation since the early 1960’s. As Sonoma County and California water supplies are stretched, using recycled water for irrigation preserves drinking water supplies for people and fresh water for creeks, rivers and wetlands. Systems are continuously upgraded in response to treatment breakthroughs and research. Windsor’s Advanced Treatment facility was built in 1991. The facility has since been upgraded and expanded over the years to improve treatment, storage and reuse.
