South Coast Recycled Water Development Plan

Heal the Ocean successfully brought together water and wastewater managers from across the Santa Barbara County South Coast to complete this $100k year-long project, which investigated potential projects to increase recycled water use in the region.

As a part of our "Waste(d)water" campaign to reduce discharges of wastewater to the ocean through the increased beneficial use of recycled water, Heal the Ocean helped organize this project with water and wastewater managers in the region through the Integrated Regional Water Management process. The plan covers the entire Santa Barbara County south coast, from Goleta to Carpinteria, and identifies additional recycled water customers, the financial costs to treat and deliver tertiary recycled water, and the benefits and barriers to additional recycled water use.
