GLOSSARY

Recycled Water
Recycled water means water which, as a result of treatment of waste, is suitable for a direct beneficial use or a controlled use that would not otherwise occur and is therefore considered a valuable resource. (Water Code 13050(n)).

Acre-foot
It is defined by the volume of one acre of surface area to a depth of one foot. Since the acre is defined as a chain by a furlong (66 ft 660 ft) the acre-foot is exactly 43,560 cubic feet. One acre-foot is taken to be the planned water usage of a suburban family household, annually.

Water Recycling Targets
The Water Boards Water Recycling Policy identifies the goals and mandates to recycled water by 2010, 2015 and 2030. Section 13577 of the California Water Code establishes the water recycling goals of 700,000 acre feet of water per year by the year 2000 and 1,000,000 acre-feet of water per year by the year 2010.
