Reclaimed Water Helps City Trees Stay Green

The City of West Sacramento has reached an agreement to use reclaimed water from the California Department of General Services cooling plant to irrigate more than two thousand City trees.

The water is being trucked daily from the plant at 625 Q St. in Sacramento where it is then used by parks and ground crews to hand water trees in median strips and public areas.

The City is using a 2,000 gallon capacity tanker truck to deliver the water two times a day, five days a week throughout the summer months. This effort is saving 80,000 gallons of drinking water each month that would otherwise have been used for irrigation.

Please help do your part by using water wisely. If you see water being wasted in West Sacramento, call (916) 617-4545 or report water issues via the West Sacramento Connect App.
