Santa Monica Turns To Water Reuse

As Santa Monica progresses towards achieving their citywide goal to become completely self-sufficient in their water sourcing, the city has recently introduced its new water reuse system at Santa Monica’s Los Amigos Park.

As Santa Monica progresses towards achieving their citywide goal to become completely self-sufficient in their water sourcing, the city has recently introduced its new water reuse system that will be put to use at Los Amigos Park this week. The system will aid in the city’s efforts towards self-sufficiency by collecting rainwater and runoff that naturally flows to the site for recycling and reuse at various locations throughout the park. 

The water will be treated at the site at which it is collected, and will then be distributed throughout the park to be used as water for flushing toilets and maintaining the lawn and gardens. As the city continues to pioneer dry weather runoff recycling and reuse collected from sprinklers and other sources of runoff, authorities are hopeful that their efforts will prompt other cities will install the systems and be compelled to follow suit. 

The city’s initiative took off after Dean Kubani, Santa Monica’s chief sustainability officer, shed light on the shortfalls of the city’s current method of acquiring water. Dependent on imports from the Colorado River and water resources in Northern California, Mr. Kubani expresses that these means of sourcing are both unsustainable and capable of making a significant negative impact on the bodies of water from which they are acquiring the majority of their water. 

The city is hopeful of the promise offered by the new system that is processing an average of 500,000 gallons of water each day. The water has already had the ability to sustain a variety of local parks, cemeteries, and buildings capable of utilizing recycled water. 

The project has overcome quite a few obstacles in that the city’s guidelines for water treatment had to be modified and adapted to allow the new method of collection and treatment. The new system utilizes an already present drain to collect the water runoff, and the water is then treated first by a filtration process, and then by UV treatment in order to rid the resulting water from potentially harmful pathogens that could jeopardize the health of any living body that might come into contact with it. Nearing purity of drinking water, the water is successfully treated and reused for use in flushing toilets and irrigation systems. 

The project is overseen by the city and the Santa Monica-Malibu School District, offering a great opportunity for education, continued innovation and a step in the right direction towards the city’s goal of total water self-sufficiency. Offering new application for water recycling from outdoor to indoor use, Santa Monica’s water recycling and reuse project is turning heads and sure to make new strides widespread in neighboring cities.

New Legislature in California Shows Increase in Awareness for Water Conservation

california-drought-riverbed-AP_1901880237170-FB.jpg

In California, bills have been introduced to mitigate future water crises from causing a widespread negative impact on the golden state. After having faced one of the longest, most damaging droughts in its history, California’s residents have experienced and learned first-hand the consequences of drought and the importance of water conservation efforts. In a state like California where water scarcity is a very present and recurring issue, the shift in usage behavior is extremely vital to the state’s well-being and sustainability – and though the drought has come to an end, Californians aren’t taking a naïve approach to their times of water availability. 

During the drought, the awareness of the importance of water conservation wasn’t the only thing taking place. The widespread lack of water sparked a motivation to prevent similar water shortages from occurring again. Making note of climate change and the rapidly growing population and the inability to meet the demand of the state when sourcing water from rivers and aquifers, officials decided that it was time for a change.

During the drought, Californians stepped up to the plate and displayed an ability to significantly reduce water consumption as awareness for the need of water efficiency and conservation grew. In recognition of the need for this awareness to propel water conservation efforts forward, Connect the Drops businesses are supporting a new set of bills and proposals for funding that would allocate monies to be dedicated to remedying California’s water crises. 

Where new technology and water treatment plants require a great deal of time and money to implement, Californians have proven their ability to conserve water and reduce the depletion of water from other sources. The new bills will support the widespread conservation of water as well as the collection of water that is conducive to healthier soil and increased crop production. Additionally, the bill directs urban water municipalities to evaluate their water sources and put into place a definitive plan that would sustain their cities in the event of another drought, ensuring that adequate supplies would be accessible in times of need. 

The legislative initiatives are anticipated to provide fewer disruptions in water availability to the consumers while ensuring that efforts are being made to remedy a long-standing problem, long-term. Promising sound solutions, the bills will not only prepare the state for drought before it strikes, but it will better enable the state to respond if a drought does occur.
