What’s Up with the Purple Pipe?

 
What is recycled water?  

Recycled water is water that leaves your home or business, enters our sewer system, and is treated at one of the four regional water reclamation facilities throughout EMWD’s service area.​

You can easily identify recycled water as it has its own distribution system which is purple, so when you see purple piping out in the community the water being used is recycled.

What Is An Aquifer?

What Is An Aquifer?

We often hear a lot about aquifers and our local water supplies, but what exactly does that mean?

An aquifer is a giant underground reservoir that holds groundwater. While we can’t build an aquifer, EMWD uses science and engineering to learn where our natural aquifers are at, and how we can keep them sustainable and healthy so they can help provide us with a safe and reliable local water supply for many years to come.
