Role of the Expert Panel

Water Code sections 13560-13569 [SB 918 (Pavley), 2010, and SB 322 (Hueso), 2013]  require CDPH, in consultation with the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), to investigate and report to the Legislature on the feasibility of developing uniform water recycling criteria for direct potable reuse.

(2) Advise the department on public health issues and scientific and technical matters regarding development of uniform water recycling criteria for indirect potable reuse through surface water augmentation; and

(3) Advise the department on public health issues and scientific and technical matters regarding the feasibility of developing uniform water recycling criteria for direct potable reuse.
