The Recycled Water Program is a partnership between the Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD), the Sacramento County Water Agency (SCWA)​, and Sacramento County Environmental Management Department (EMD) Environmental Compliance Division:

Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) – provides recycled water treatment, monitors recycled water quality.

SCWA – distributes recycled water to customers, monitors recycled water use.

EMD – provides recycled water compliance assistance for the protection of the environment, public health, and safety.

The California Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) issues the necessary permits for the County to produce and distribute recycled water to its customers.  The RWQCB enforces Title 22 regulations set forth by the California Department of Health Services and self-monitoring is required to ensure that water quality standards are being met.  Onsite field inspections ensure that  the applicable regulations and health standards are in compliance.

Please contact John Lewis at​ for more information on regulations affecting recycled water usage at the local level.  Below, is a helpful brochure that gives an overview of the​ recycled water process and the rules and regulations that govern its use.
