Recycled Water

Since 1995, the District has served recycled water for irrigation and restroom facilities through a partnership with the Goleta Sanitary District.  The District’s largest recycled water customers are the University of California, the City of Santa Barbara, and several golf courses in the area.  Using recycled water for irrigation and other non-potable uses helps to conserve and stretch the District’s potable water supplies, improving supply reliability and keeping costs lower for customers.
