Free San Jose/Santa Clara Water Plant Tour

Two years left for the master plan, then real work will begin. Current wastewater treatment facility uses large turbine which is not energy-efficient and contributes largest portion to the utility bill of the facility. More efficient turbine design, for example, is being considered. Solar panel to help generate electricity is also also being studied. One thing seems to be for sure. Chlorine gas will be replaced by chlorine solution.

The department owns many acres of land unused now. Another possibility is to turn it into a wildlife refuge for recreation to attract both business and tourist to come.
