Wastewater & Water Recycling

There are no impacts from the Coronavirus to Monterey One Water’s wastewater or water recycling treatment processes. We want to reassure the community that Coronavirus, a respiratory illness like the flu or cold, is a prime example of the viruses and other pathogens wastewater treatment plants are designed to treat. Like normal, our state-approved laboratory will continue its regular sampling and testing protocol to ensure all water quality standards are met. The M1W staff is highly trained and prepared to protect public and environmental health and safety. View more information on COVID-19
