Topic: Safe Drinking Water in Drought Conditions

Food processing plants in Southern California are concerned about water quality. Not only is water used in food and beverage products, but also for cleaning and sanitation programs.

Do you know where our water supply comes from? Hint: distant lands and the distant past, although some water resources are near and “new” (may be in your neighborhood!). Speaking of which, do you know about local water reuse projects being implemented for our wastewater?

We’ll learn about treatment and monitoring conducted by local water utilities to ensure a safe and reliable supply of drinking water. And while we’re on the subject… why does Southern California tap water taste different than bottled water?

With the current California water crisis, recent legislative changes are impacting the way our water is managed. In July 2014, drinking water regulation transitioned from the California Department of Public Health to the State Water Resources Control Board, which now has the primary authority to enforce federal and state Safe Drinking Water Acts and has oversight of about 8,000 public water systems and wastewater reuse projects throughout the state.

We will hear highlights from a June 2015 report to the California Legislature titled “Safe Drinking Water Plan for California”. The talk will cover overall quality of Southern California drinking water, the use of water quality solutions including several types of filtration, and interesting ways that the state and local water districts are trying to boost our water supply.
