Bring Our Community Recycled Water Now!

This petition had 131 supporters

Six million gallons of recycled water is currently lost to our region each day.  What if we could keep this precious resource locally – a resource that 600,000+ people in 120 square miles in Highland, San Bernardino, Colton, Loma Linda, Redlands, Rialto, and Riverside depend on as a source of water? 

The Sterling Natural Resource Center will be a state-of-the-art facility designed to treat up to 10 million gallons of wastewater per day. Following treatment, this water will be recharged into the local Bunker Hill Groundwater Basin, where it will be stored for use during future droughts.

The facility’s vision is to construct a location that will produce recycled water while creating a public center that will benefit local residents. This includes providing educational opportunities, a space for community functions and neighborhood enhancements, much-needed improvements this community wants and deserves.

While the Sterling Natural Resource Center is celebrating many recent milestones, including being granted a 1211 permit which allows up to 10 million gallons of recycled water daily to recharge the Bunker Hill Basin, we need to continue highlighting how much we look forward to this new community space, education and training opportunities, and neighborhood improvements that the Sterling Natural Resource Center will provide.

We’re asking for your signature to help our community secure this much-needed facility and create a long-term investment for residents and businesses.

Please sign and share this petition to inspire others to make every source a resource. Include hashtag #MyWaterMyFuture to spread the word.
