San Diego’s Water Purification Demonstration Project Wins Award

by Rick Wilson

The WateReuse Association has recognized San Diego’s Water Purification Demonstration Project for the “2011 WateReuse Public Education Program of the Year Award." Along with examining the use of advanced water purification technology to potentially provide safe and reliable water for San Diego’s future (at less cost and with less environmental impacts than seawater desalination), the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department has embarked on a program to educate residents about the Demonstration Project by offering free public tours of the Advanced Water Purification Facility, speaker presentations to interested groups and opportunities to learn about the Demonstration Project at community events throughout San Diego.
