South Bay Water Recycling - Providing drought-proof, high quality water for our community. 
South Bay Water Recycling
The South Bay Water Recycling (SBWR) program is the regional permit holder for recycled water in San José, Santa Clara, and Milpitas, assuring compliance with State regulations for recycled water quality and use.

Recycled water production is a requirement of the San José – Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility discharge permit, to protect saltwater habitat and endangered species from too much freshwater discharge.

Recycled water use also preserves the potable water supply. We deliver up to 30 million gallons of recycled water per day to commercial customers.
