The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company is cooking up something a bit unusual; it’s using high-purity recycled water to make beer, San Mateo, California, USA.(I think).
Current state laws require recycled water be injected to replenish aquifers then pumped out as groundwater before it can be used for drinking purposes. Instead, two pieces of legislation — Assembly Bill 1463 and Senate Bill 919 — propose changing regulations regarding recycled water and making it more accessible. One push is to have it used for potable purposes while making it directly accessible from a treatment plant without first becoming groundwater.
