San Diego’s Water Purification Demonstration Wins National Award

Sept. 21, 2011

Project received the 2011 WateReuse Public Education Program of the Year Award

The WateReuse Assn. has recognized San Diego’s Water Purification Demonstration Project as the 2011 WateReuse Public Education Program of the Year at its 26th Annual Symposium in Arizona.

Along with examining the use of advanced water purification technology to potentially provide safe and reliable water for San Diego’s future, the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department has embarked on a program to educate residents about the project by offering free public tours of the Advanced Water Purification Facility, speaker presentations to interested groups and opportunities to learn about the project at community events throughout San Diego.
“The Mayor and City Council requested that we develop and implement a comprehensive public education and outreach program for this demonstration project and that’s exactly what we have done," Public Utilities Director Roger Bailey said. “We are truly honored to be recognized for our ongoing work to increase community awareness of this potential new water supply.”
The award recognizes education programs whose outreach enhances a better appreciation of water resources, management and conservation. The department is receiving this award for its continued dedication to water reuse and its successful education campaign for the project.
