Pismo Beach City Council announces plans to use recycled water

Posted: Updated:

 The Pismo Beach City Council has announced plans to recycle water to boost the city's water supply.

 The city says it has approved a plan to capture water that would otherwise be lost, treat it, and use it to restore underground supplies.

 "What we'll do is we'll take our affluent stream that we're pumping to the ocean and it'll go through an advanced filtration process and then it will be directed and injected back into the groundwater basin so it'll be a potable water that will be distributed through the municipal water system. It's a local, sustainable, highly drought proof source of water," said Ben Fine, Director of Public Works for the city of Pismo Beach.

The city says the new source could add as much as 950 acre feet to the city's water reserves once complete. Providing a reliable, long-term drought resistant water supply.
