SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A bill allowing Californians to taste-test recycled water in their communities is one signature away from becoming law. If Governor Brown signs Assemblyman Rich Gordon's AB 2022 into law, water agencies will be able to distribute small bottles of advanced purified potable reused water for free for educational purposes. Under current law, consumers must visit a water recycling facility in person to drink this reused water, which is often more pure that tap water.
"California must diversify its water portfolio to ensure water security for our growing population," said Assemblyman Gordon. "Advanced purified reused water is a critical source of potable water, and this bill allows Californians to get comfortable drinking one of our water sources of the future."
