Eastside Recycled Water Project

On San Francisco’s east side, we are aiming to save an average of about 2 million gallons per day (mgd) of drinking water that would otherwise be used for non-drinking purposes. Our proposed Eastside Recycled Water Project would deliver recycled water to a variety of customers for uses such as irrigation and toilet flushing.

The Eastside Recycled Water Project has been paused in part to allow for better coordination with the Sewer System Improvement Program, the SFPUC’s long-term capital plan to improve the City’s sewer system. In particular, major construction is scheduled in the coming years at the Southeast Wastewater Treatment Plant, a potential site and water source for the eastside recycled water facility.
