Sacramento, Calif. — All life depends on water for survival. But while more than two-thirds of the earth is covered with water, preparing it for human use—and then cleaning it once used—takes a lot of work.
During California’s second annual Water Professionals Appreciation Week (October 6–14), water professionals are being recognized and celebrated for their pivotal role in protecting public health and the environment.
Sacramento, Calif.— The California Water Commission (Commission) recently announced that Regional San will receive $280.5 million—the maximum requested funding amount—in Proposition 1 grant funding to help make the South County Ag Program a reality for the Sacramento region.
Elk Grove, CA – Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District (Regional San) recently accepted a 21-acre solar energy project built on the grounds of the Sacramento Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (SRWTP) in Elk Grove. The array is one of the largest in the Sacramento region.
The 4.2-megawatt solar array is a clean and sustainable energy source that will help power SRWTP’s energy-intensive operations. The solar project increases and diversifies Regional San’s green energy portfolio while reducing energy costs.
Regional San’s landmark water recycling effort, the South County Ag Program, was in the news again, this time on CBS13.
This report focuses on the Program’s aim to deliver highly treated wastewater to farmers as a drought-proof water resource. The Program will also help recharge groundwater in the south county, restore precious wildlife habitat, and even benefit the health of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
Regional San’s South County Ag Program, a landmark water recycling effort, was profiled on ABC 10.
