San Diego Learns How to Recycle Water

The idea of being able to "treat and serve" is an alternative to building a big and expensive recycled water system in San Diego. With San Diego being awarded an EPA waiver to continue discharging (wasting) 175 MGD of primary effluent to the sea from Point Loma, I see that San Diego has a strategy to avoid or postpone the cost of a recycled water system. Many sewage authorities north and south of San Diego, have bitten the bullet, and built recycled water pipeline systems. I believe the current drought, which could last many more years, makes it more imperative that San Diego do something now to recover the 175 MGD. Smileydoh
