WateReuse California (WRCA) is working on a strategy that includes significant funding for water recycling projects. In order to best position reuse in these ongoing discussions, WRCA needs to have a better estimate of the total funding needs for reuse over the next 5 to 10 years.

To educate consumers about the damage “flushable” wipes can cause to their pipes, Central San officials released a video revealing new field study results. In conjunction with CASA’s multi-agency wipes dispersibility project, the agency tested 13 products to see how they would fare running through and active system sewer main. Central San’s results demonstrated that the wipes that contained synthetic materials remained largely intact at the end of the test. To check out the video go here.
We encourage members to share the video and spread the message on social media using the hashtag #wipesclogpipes.
