INNOVATION & PRESERVATION
We have strategically invested in infrastructure and technologies to preserve our water supply. We are a leader in the nation when it comes to water reuse, recycling 97% of the City's treated wastewater through innovative partnerships that support agriculture, energy production, and environmental restoration.
One of those projects is the Tres Rios Wetlands. Highly treated wastewater from a nearby wastewater treatment plant flows through the habitat which is home to native plants and more than 200 bird species. The wetlands benefit the community in many other ways, including flood control and recreational opportunities.
