Recycled Water

Important Info:
Important Links:

The Cross Connection and Water Pollution Control Program is responsible for the oversight of new and converted recycled water re-use sites from the planning stage through final approval. This responsibility extends to consultation with project managers and engineering staff regarding plan check; attending construction meetings; conducting on-site field reviews; and granting the final approval for the safe use of recycled water. The objective is to convert new and existing major landscape irrigation systems and selected industrial facilities to recycled water utilizing water quality criteria and guidelines for new construction found in the "Purple Book", California Health Laws Related to Recycled Water.

Recycled water is limited to use that is approved by the California Department of Public Health, the Regional Water Quality Control Board Los Angeles Division, and the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health. Any unauthorized use of recycled water is prohibited. Recycled water may only be used in those areas approved by the local water utility company. Approval by the local water utility company will only be granted upon the fulfillment of all requirements of the applicable regulatory agencies.
