Guaranteed Water for Industry Program

The Guaranteed Water for Industry Program was created to provide an uninterruptible supply of water for manufacturing and R&D firms, many of whom are highly dependent on water for industrial processing and cooling needs. "Certified" water customers are "exempt" from mandatory water conservation measures in the event of a drought ("water warning") situation and must use reclaimed water to the extent possible in their manufacturing areas, cooling towers, and/or other uses, plus implement "Best Management Practices for Potable Water Conservation." Other benefits include:

  • discounted monthly rates for reclaimed water usage (.80/HCF);
  • a possible one-time cost savings on water capacity charges.
