North Bay Water Reuse Program – One of Five Recycled Water Projects Prioritized in State in “Key Infrastructure” Funding Package

Santa Rosa, CA. — The North Bay Water Reuse Program was acknowledged last week by the Governor’s office as one of five recycled water projects with high priority for funding along with various other “key infrastructure projects” totaling $100 billion dollars. The myriad of projects include improvements to bridges, roads, ports and public transit systems, as well as, water storage and recycled water projects.

“Once again this shows that our continued efforts in Sacramento and DC do pay off,” said Supervisor David Rabbitt, Chair of the North Bay Water Reuse Authority (NBWRA). “This is an another acknowledgment of the outstanding projects this program has developed that provide high quality recycled water to meet urban, agricultural and environment needs in the North Bay region.”

Executive Secretary of Governor Brown’s office, Nancy McFadden, announced on February 7th a variety of infrastructure investment projects across the state that would be priorities for funds as a part of the state’s $100 billion package (Announcement Here).

The NBWRA is an organization of water and wastewater agencies working together on regional water recycling projects in the North Bay. The program leverages federal, state and local funds and uses a watershed approach to managing recycled water to build resiliency into our water supply.
