Recycled Water Fill Station

The City has opened a Recycled Water Fill Station at the Wastewater Treatment Plant, 2251 Elkins Way for City of Brentwood utility customers (“customers”).  Recycled water is wastewater that has received extensive treatment in order to be used for many non-potable water uses such as landscape irrigation.  The use of recycled water for this purpose is a way for customers to help meet State mandated regulations to reduce potable water use.
