The treated water is sold to local water retailers such as San Jose Water Company who use their own distribution systems to serve customers.. Water pumped from the groundwater aquifer through wells is used by private well owners, farmers, and water retailers.. Imported water.. Half of Santa Clara County’s water supply comes from hundreds of miles away - first as snow or rain in the Sierra Nevada range of northern and eastern California, then as water in rivers that flow into Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta or directly to water conveyance systems.. Often called “imported water”, it is brought into the  ...   Department of Health Services.. Using recycled water helps conserve drinking water supplies, provides a dependable, drought-proof, locally-controlled water supply, reduces dependency on imported water and groundwater and helps preserve our saltwater and tidal habitat by reducing freshwater discharge to the bay.. Save water.. Did you know that only less than 1 percent of all water on Earth is suitable for use by people? The rest is salt water, like the kind found in the ocean, or is permanently frozen.. We can’t drink it, wash with it or use it to water plants.. With California in the midst of drought, we must be careful not to waste this precious limited resource.. Related Information..

Consequently, the natural periodic overflowing of local creeks and rivers began to  ...   the years as the county’s population and economy have grown, the water district has worked to keep pace with ongoing stream maintenance and construction of flood protection projects..
