Guaranteed Water for Industry Program

Guaranteed Water for Industry Hero Collage

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.
