WATER CODE
SECTION 13560-13569



13560.  The Legislature finds and declares the following:
   (a) In February 2009, the state board unanimously adopted, as
Resolution No. 2009-0011, an updated water recycling policy, which
includes the goal of increasing the use of recycled water in the
state over 2002 levels by at least 1,000,000 acre-feet per year by
2020 and by at least 2,000,000 acre-feet per year by 2030.
   (b) Section 13521 requires the department to establish uniform
statewide recycling criteria for each varying type of use of recycled
water where the use involves the protection of public health.
   (c) The use of recycled water for indirect potable reuse is
critical to achieving the state board's goals for increased use of
recycled water in the state. If direct potable reuse can be
demonstrated to be safe and feasible, implementing direct potable
reuse would further aid in achieving the state board's recycling
goals.
   (d) Although there has been much scientific research on public
health issues associated with indirect potable reuse through
groundwater recharge, there are a number of significant unanswered
questions regarding indirect potable reuse through surface water
augmentation and direct potable reuse.
   (e) Achievement of the state's goals depends on the timely
development of uniform statewide recycling criteria for indirect and
direct potable water reuse.
   (f) This chapter is not intended to delay, invalidate, or reverse
any study or project, or development of regulations by the
department, the state board, or the regional boards regarding the use
of recycled water for indirect potable reuse for groundwater
recharge, surface water augmentation, or direct potable reuse.
   (g) This chapter shall not be construed to delay, invalidate, or
reverse the department's ongoing review of projects consistent with
Section 116551 of the Health and Safety Code.

planned use of recycled water for replenishment of a groundwater
basin or an aquifer that has been designated as a source of water
supply for a public water system, as defined in Section 116275 of the
Health and Safety Code.
   (d) "Surface water augmentation" means the planned placement of
recycled water into a surface water reservoir used as a source of
domestic drinking water supply.
