Water Conservation

At the Airport buildings are major users of potable water. As a result, San José Mineta International Airport (SJC) is aiming for more efficient use of this limited resource.

SJC uses recycled water for toilet flushing and landscaping, which consist of primarily native and drought tolerant plants to reduce water use.

Recycled water is treated and provided by South Bay Water Recycling (SBWR). A City agency with a network of over 100 miles of purple pipes throughout Santa Clara County.
