OPINION: When It Comes to Water, We Need All the Data We Can Get

In many cases, more truly is better. In California, especially as the current punishing drought continues for a fifth year, more definitely would be better in just about every regard when it comes to water. This is true when it comes to water research. And as demonstrated by two separate studies reported on recently by The Desert Sun’s Ian James, more data on groundwater in California would be a good thing indeed. The Desert Sun’s Ian James reported recently on the work done by teams at Stanford University.

San Diego Accelerates Water Recycling

San Diego is accelerating construction of its landmark water recycling system and making other changes that will save money, benefit the environment and make pipeline construction less disruptive.

City officials plan to begin recycling 30 million gallons a day of sewage into drinking water by 2021, much quicker than a previous schedule calling for 15 million gallons daily by 2023 and 30 million gallons per day by 2027. The faster schedule is possible primarily because officials have decided to do all of the recycling in Miramar instead of splitting it in half between Miramar and Otay Mesa.
