Fastest Growing Area
The Inland Empire has experienced a recent population explosion and, in fact, has been the fastest growing area of California for several years. New residents are attracted by the economic vitality of the region as well as the natural beauty of the San Gabriel Mountains, the many parks, lush golf courses, and highly rated schools. As the Cucamonga Valley continues to grow, so does the demand for water. Making recycled water available for landscape and industrial purposes allows the Cucamonga Valley Water District (CVWD) to conserve the drinking water supply for other needs. Utilizing recycled water and conserving (potable) drinking water also helps CVWD diversify our water supply so we are not so reliant on only one source of water.
Integrating Recycled Water
Integrating recycled water into the overall water supply helps to limit water shortages in the future. Construction of a recycled water distribution system has allowed the district to receive recycled water via the Inland Empire Utilities Agency’s Regional Recycled Water System for distribution to local parks, greenbelts, and commercial centers.
Purposes of Recycled Water
Recycled water has been used within CVWD for the past seven years. CVWD continues to develop its use of recycled water for irrigation purposes. Throughout the CVWD service area, recycled water is used to water a golf course, parks, street medians / parkways, school athletic fields, and the landscaping at business and industrial complexes. The district currently has 90 recycled water customers online, who use 1,300 AFY (1.16 million gallons per day) of recycled water.
Effective July 1, 2016, the temporary construction meter rate for Recycled Water is $3.26 per hundred cubic feet.
Effective July 1, 2016, the Recycled Water Rate for domestic/landscape use is $1.63 per hundred cubic feet.
