WaterSmart Ag


Welcome to WaterSmart Ag. Here you can find current information on the agricultural recycled water program. 

The City of Santa Rosa has distinct fees for Ag Recycled Water Customers, Urban Recycled Water Customers, and Geysers Reuse. The fee for Ag Recycled Water Customers pays for approximately one-half of the electrical cost to deliver water to our customers. The fee does not include labor or infrastructure maintenance. The fee takes into consideration the interruptability of recycled water deliveries, the operational flexibility that the interuptability provides the recycled water system, and the critical role Ag Recycled Water Customers play in beneficially reusing recycled water.
