The recycled water fill stations closed for the rainy season in December 2019, and have remained closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this time, the District has evaluated the program and determined that the lack of staffing and ongoing expense to operate the fill stations is not cost effective and they will remain closed for the time being.
The recycled water fill stations will remain closed while any of the following conditions are in place:
The County or State has mandated COVID-19 or other health restrictions
The District’s customer service offices are closed to the public
The District and San Diego region have sufficient water supplies and are not experiencing water supply restrictions
District budget constraints exist that limit available funding for this program
If you would like to be added to our interest list for this program and be contacted if stations reopen, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Padre Dam's recycled water fill stations opened in 2015 as a response to extreme drought. The recycled water supplying these fill stations came from Padre Dam's Ray Stoyer Water Recycling Facility.
From 2015-2019, Padre Dam customers collected over 1.6 million gallons of recycled water. The use of this water helped to offset drinking water use for landscape irrigation.
