San Jose Water Company Recycled Water Project
May 22, 2012

The City of San Jose adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the San Jose Water Company Phase II Recycled Water Project. AES prepared an Initial Study for the project pursuant to the requirements of CEQA. The project will result in extensions to the South Bay Water Recycling (SBWR) Program’s infrastructure to include 13 miles of new recycled water pipelines through public right-of-ways within the City. The proposed infrastructure will serve typical non-potable uses for recycled water, such as landscape irrigation. As part of the project, San Jose Water Company will construct, own, and operate the new recycled water pipelines and associated user connections identified in its Recycled Water Master Plan for the distribution of recycled water within its existing service area. Key issues addressed by AES within the CEQA documentation included groundwater quality, biological resources, cultural resources, noise, public utilities and services, public health and safety, and traffic and circulation.
