EMWD is widely viewed as an industry leader in recycled water. EMWD regularly uses 100 percent of its recycled water supply for beneficial use within its 555-square mile service area. EMWD is one of the largest by-volume recyclers in the nation and one of the few agencies that achieves 100 percent beneficial reuse, a strategic objective established by its Board of Directors.
