Waste(d)water: The Potential for Recycled Water in the Santa Barbara Region

July 09, 2015

This one-page Infographic illustrates the substantial potential for recycled water supplies to meet water demand in the Santa Barbara region – from Goleta to Carpinteria.

The Infographic is the result of work by James Hawkins, policy analyst for Heal the Ocean, who collected and compiled the 2014 wastewater flows and water demand data from all of the Santa Barbara south county wastewater and water districts. In 2014, wastewater districts up and down the Santa Barbara coast discharged 12,403,333 gallons of secondary treated wastewater every DAY into the ocean. If all wastewater supplies were reclaimed, the region could meet over one-third of total water demand and 62% of residential water demand.
