Building Water Reuse Opportunities in San Francisco
The City and County of San Francisco has long been a leader in water conservation and expanding local water supplies to protect against droughts and the effects of climate change. In a dense, urban center like San Francisco, the capture and reuse of water generated on-site—from graywater (sinks, washers, and showers), rainwater, blackwater (graywater and toilets), and foundation drainage (water that floods basements)—is a key strategy for expanding water savings and diversifying our water supply.
Please join us to hear about the City’s Non-Potable Water Program and the streamlined process for new large developments in San Francisco to collect, treat, and reuse water for toilet flushing, irrigation and other non-potable uses. Established through an ordinance adopted by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, this voluntary program establishes guidelines for developers interested in installing non-potable water systems. Recognizing the environmental benefits and water savings that accrue, the new SFPUC headquarters at 525 Golden Gate Avenue uses on-site treated water for toilet flushing.
Paula Kehoe, Water Resources Director, San Francisco Public Utilities CommissionPaula Kehoe is the Director of Water Resources for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC). Ms. Kehoe is responsible for diversifying San Francisco’s water supply portfolio though the development and implementation of conservation, groundwater, desalination and recycled water projects.

Ms. Kehoe previously served as the assistant to the General Manager and contributed to the development of the SFPUC’s $4.6 billion capital improvement program designed to rebuild and repair the third largest water delivery system in California. For more than seven years, she served as Public Education Director for the City of San Francisco’s Water Pollution Prevention Program receiving six state and national award, including the Water Environment Federation’s Public Education Award and Association of Metropolitan Sewerage Agencies’ National Public Education Award. Ms. Kehoe holds a BA from the University of Colorado, Boulder and a MS from the University of San Francisco.
ABOUT THE ECODISTRICT PRESENTATION SERIES:
The EcoDistrict Presentation Series is a popular forum for the discussion of issues relating to EcoDistrict development in the City. Speakers relate their specific area of interest to the city’s sustainability goals and provide valuable context for staff in terms of how and what may be considered in implementing EcoDistricts in the city. As important, the discussion engages the opinions of people from a variety of backgrounds, broadening everyone’s perspective and encouraging in the sharing of ideas.
