Silicon Valley Water Purification Plant
Valley Water Board Chair Tony Estremera proclaims: "In Silicon Valley, we believe in science!" Based on this, authorities have made a bold plan for the near future: to reclaim wastewater, purify it, and inject it into underground aquifers. At the Water Purification Plant we tour the large demonstration site and learn the many additional steps through which "recycled water" becomes "purified water."
