Recycled Water

Through the partnership between Mt. View Sanitary District (MVSD) and Central Contra Costa Sanitary District (CCCSD), MVSD customers are eligible to get free recycled water from CCCSD.  Recycled water can be used to hand-water lawns, gardens and landscaping. It should not be consumed or allowed to run off into storm drains.
