The Guaranteed Water for Industry Program was created to provide an uninterruptible supply of water for manufacturing and research and development (R&D) firms, many of whom are highly dependent on water for industrial processing and cooling needs.
Businesses can apply to have a site certified as "exempt" from the water-use restrictions during Drought Response Level 2 if they use reclaimed water to the extent possible in their manufacturing areas, cooling towers, landscaping and/or other operations. Certified businesses must implement "Best Management Practices for Potable Water Conservation" in their facilities. Other benefits include discounted monthly rates for reclaimed water usage ($1.73/HCF).
The City of San Diego Municipal Code Section 67.3804(f) lists specific requirements for eligibility.
