Ever wonder what happens to the water that goes down your drains? All the wastewater eventually ends up in the bay, but it has to go through numerous treatments to prevent pollution and to allow the water to be used as recycled water. After sedimentation, wastewater goes through biological treatment, filtration, and disinfection before water is released to the bay or channeled through recycled water pipes. Solids are also treated in the wastewater, and some become biosolids for agriculture and landfill use. You’ll see all the stages in this tour.


Tour the Silicon Valley Clean Water wastewater treatment plant undergoing an $700 million Capital Improvement Program to update the aging infrastructure. The plant is a regional facility that serves Belmont, Redwood City, San Carlos and West Bay Sanitary District.
