SDCTA adopts Water Recycling Regulatory Reform Principles
State of California law is antiquated when it comes to how recycled water is treated. Policy makers and the general public are ready to side with science and have gotten over the "yuck factor." Advanced Treated Purified Water is not waste, and should not be defined as such. Because this legislation allows for fees to recoup expenses without specifying their levels, we should proceed with caution as fees could be set so high as to discourage future projects. Revising law that was influenced by since diminished fear of recycled water should be a priority.
