Q. What happens to the water that the District uses?
A. Water used by the District is collected as wastewater, treated in the
wastewater treatment facility, and discharged to an exfiltration gallery
to promote recharge of the local groundwater system. On average, 95% of
the water used by the District is returned to the exfiltration gallery
(For example, if the District's water use in a day is 10,000 gallons,
9,500 gallons are discharged to the exfiltration gallery and 500 gallons
are consumed by the District's customers). The District replaces its 5%
consumptive use by releasing additional water to South Turkey Creek. In
the end, 100% of the water used by the District is returned to the South
Turkey Creek Basin.
