Protecting Our Environment
Clapper Rail in MarshIn addition to protecting public health, the Facility has another vital responsibility: protecting our environment.

As an environmental steward, the Facility monitors the health of aquatic ecosystems; ensures that its highly treated wastewater meets strict standards and can benefit wildlife; restores marshland for migrating birds; and protects habitat for western burrowing owls and other species that are of concern, threatened, or endangered.
