Alternative California recycled water policy published

A revised proposal for a California Recycled Water Policy to establish more uniform requirements for the use of recycled water has been developed by a group of stakeholders and state water board staff and was released for public comment on 19 November 2008.

This follows rejection on 18 March 2008 of a proposed policy developed by the State Water Resources Control Board.

The deadline for comments on this revised proposed Recycled Water Policy and an associated draft Certified Regulatory Program Environmental Analysis (Staff Report) is 22 December 2008 at noon.
