Excerpt: Locally, the Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center (SVAWPC), operated by the SCVWD, is a state-of-the-art water purification plant that takes recycled water from the San Jose-Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility and purifies it to meet even higher environmental quality standards.
