For the past six months, several state agencies have been conducting workshops to gather public input on proposed regulations that would mandate recycled water infrastructure (purple pipe) in those areas of the state already served by centralized water recycling plants. This is in response to industry-supported legislation AB 2282 (Gatto). While industry has, and will continue to strongly support the adoption of these building standards, we have indicated strong opposition to a proposed signage requirement when recycled water is brought indoors for use in toilets. Specifically, the Department of Water Resources is asking HCD and BSC to adopt building standards which would mandate the placement of a permanent sign on the tanks of all residential and commercial toilets which says “CAUTION: Nonpotable Reclaimed (Recycled) Water – DO NOT DRINK”. Representatives from the residential and commercial building industries are arguing that there are numerous ways the owners or occupants of buildings can be notified of the presence of recycled water that do not involve the placement of permanent signs on toilets.
