May 2008 -- President Bush signed a bill May 8, 2008 authorizing federal support for Bay Area cities pursuing the development of new water sources.

Under the new law, local water and wastewater agencies will be able to work jointly with the federal government to construct pipelines, treatment facilities and other infrastructure to develop and expand the use of recycled water in the Bay Area.

These water-recycling projects will reduce the demand for fresh water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and help municipalities reduce the costs from expensive and scarce fresh water supplies. Other jurisdictions that will benefit from the legislation are Palo Alto, Mountain View, Pacifica, South Santa Clara County, Redwood City and San Jose.

Reusing treated water helps to preserve the region's river and groundwater supplies, officials said. In addition, treating and reusing wastewater allows urban water systems to improve the overall security and reliability of their water supply.

The legislation opens the door for Bay Area cities to seek federal funding to develop 32,000 acre-feet of new drought-proof water supplies.
