About the Program

California’s wastewater sector helps protect public health and the environment. It is also the source of recycled water—a growing water supply. But climate change is bringing water scarcity and other pressures to the sector. PPIC researcher Caitrin Chappelle will outline findings from a new report, and a panel of experts will discuss policy improvements to prepare the sector for a more volatile future.

This research was supported with funding from the California Association of Sanitation Agencies, the US Environmental Protection Agency, and the S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation.
