Highlights from the Open House on Oct. 24, 2015

The Santa Clara Valley Water District is committed to expand recycled and purified water to make up 10 percent or more of Santa Clara County’s water supply by expediting its plan to replenish groundwater basins with purified water. Having already launched a tour program at its Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center (SVAWPC) as part of its outreach efforts puts SCVWD one step ahead on achieving its goal of 45,000 AFY of purified water production.

The purification center has served as an outreach anchor to educate and build public support and acceptance of SCVWD efforts to expand its potable reuse efforts. The Pure Water Silicon Valley outreach team held its first large-scale Community Open House on Oct. 24, 2015 that featured guided tours, a video water galley, kids fun zone, and” Taste Test Challenge” area in a festive setting.
