Transporting Recycled Water-Containers to Choose
Containers must have water-tight lids and must not leak. Check local hardware stores, as well as online sources, such as Amazon.com to find a container that you will be comfortable moving and placing in your car. The Minimum container size is one gallon. Maximum size is 100 gallons. There is no limit to the amount of visits a customer makes in a day.
Remember, Each Gallon of Water Weighs 8.34 Pounds!
One gallon of water weighs 8.34lbs; 100 gallons weighs 834 pounds. Make sure to review your vehicles gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). Overloading vehicles is unsafe and could cause a traffic accident. Also, please remember, when driving a heavily loaded vehicle, be sure to allow enough stopping distance.
Never Connect Recycled Water to Existing Irrigation
Tanks, pumps, hoses, and equipment that contain recycled water must not be connected to buried irrigation systems, even if those systems are disconnected from your drinking water system. This is a human health concern. We do not want you or your neighbors to end up drinking recycled water due to an illegal interconnection between the drinking water supply and recycled water supply. Any such connection violates the state’s drinking water regulations, the District Code, the Recycled Water Use Agreement you sign in order to use the fill station, and your city’s water code. Violators may be subject to fines and loss of fill station privileges. Please call us if you have questions about approved storage and use of recycled water. (650) 355-3462.
