Las Positas College has used reclaimed water for irrigation for many years. Reclaimed or recycled water has been treated, but is diverted to irrigation instead. Because this water already contains minerals, phosphates, etc.; no fertilizers are need on our lawns or landscaping. Using reclaimed water saves valuable drinking water for people and agriculture. To learn more about recycled water, visit the informative City of Livermore website.
Las Positas College has established rigorous standards for sinks and toilets, etc, that are water efficient.
For example new waterless urinals are the standard for new construction
