California water conservation irrigation California cities that failed to meet the state’s water and sewer quality requirements are now faced with large fines and even hire construction costs.

Tertiary Sewer Plants to Save Water

"People don’t like seeing their service rates go up," one water manager said. "People can see policemen and firemen, but they don’t think about sewage after they flush the toilet. It’s expensive to build a tertiary plant and some people just don’t want to pay for it."

The value to the public is tenfold when recycled water from tertiary plants can be reused for irrigation, recreation, highway beautification, wildlife habitat and more.

"Eventually all water will be reused,” said Greg Cash, engineering geologist with CRWQCB. "It’s only a matter of time."

Pharmaceutical Drugs in Groundwater

A recent study by the (United States Geological Survey) shows that 70 to 80 percent of all rivers and streams contain pharmaceutical drugs. They’re in our groundwater.

Cash said that current studies are being done now to determine the level of harm residual pharmaceuticals have on plants and wildlife and the level of treatment that would be needed to remove pharmaceuticals from wastewater.
