free-water-programsWest Basin provides water recycling tours as a resource for the public. It is an opportunity for the general public to see the inner-workings of a water treatment facility firsthand. Guests will learn about the five types of fit-for-purpose water produced by the District during a 1.5 hour walking tour.  Participants must be 7 years old or older.
