Overview

How did you use water today? Watsonville provides 6 million gallons of potable tap water each day to Watsonville homes and businesses. After we use it, it is treated using the latest technology at the Watsonville Wastewater Recycling Plant. Watsonville recycles over a billion gallons of fresh water a year which is a safe source of water for Pajaro Valley farms.  Engage students with local water careers and technology. Guided live in person or online by Marcus from Pajaro Valley Water and Tami from Watsonville Public Works.
