The purpose of this project is to improve the reliability, efficiency and reduce the cost of energy use for water and wastewater treatment facilities in California. Availability of clean water at a low cost is essential to California's economy and continued prosperity. California needs to treat large quantities of water to meet both municipal and waste discharge requirements that are heavily dependent on electricity. Water treatment facilities in California use 4 percent of all the electricity used in California.
