Water Reclamation Potential in Southern California to the Year 2010

by Bahman Sheikh, City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Policy and Management: Solving the Problems


This is a summary of plans and projections for future water recycling by Southern California public and private water and sewerage agencies involved in water recycling. The central purpose of the survey was to determine the agencies' plans, projections and vision for future water reuse by category of use and by region. The real potential for water reuse is the total wastewater stream currently being wasted-some 2.5 to 3 million acre-ft per year (AFY) for the State as a whole. In addition, factors that stimulate and promote growth in water recycling are evaluated.
