Recycled Water Availability for the 2022 Irrigation Season
Santa Rosa Water Staff are pleased to share that our recycled water supply is looking promising for the 2022 recycled water use season even with continued drought conditions. This season, we plan to initially allocate approximately 900 million gallons of recycled water for frost protection and irrigation use. We are hopeful that we will be able to increase this allocation monthly through June, supply permitting. By the end of January, each of our customers will receive notification of their initial allocation and will receive monthly updates throughout the season.
