A Presentation By Nai Hsueh
The Santa Clara Valley Water District is responsible for securing, managing and delivering a safe and reliable water supply to the region. Searching for sustainable local water supply sources that match the right quality with the right use is part of that responsibility. The Santa Clara valley needs additional supplies, and highly purified recycled water is our new, locally developed and reliable water supply. The Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center, the largest plant of its kind in northern California, is the focal point of the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s recycled water expansion.
The $72 million state-of-the-art facility receives secondary-treated effluent from the neighboring San José-Santa Clara Regional Wastewater Facility and purifies it to a very high quality using proven purification processes—microfiltration, reverse osmosis and ultraviolet disinfection.
