Another month in the books, this time we started a new water year and have seen residential recycled water fill stations close up shops for the winter rainy season. Many others have reduced hours of operation as there is fewer demand. Either way, this blog still wrote a few articles and began the transition into our winter topic – rainwater harvesting.
Come see all the article you missed and some pertinent social media stats.
No better time than the present to do a content roll up, even if I’m 19 days late.
Lets get straight to it. As normal, 4 articles were written, impressions from twitter were off the charts and international interest from South Africa was on the rise as well. Lets see what went down.
Another amazing month has come to a close, we’re just that much closer to the summer recycled water hauling season (and fill stations) to lock their gates as we all prepare for winter rains. With winter rains comes rainwater harvesting articles. Yippee!
During the past month, 4 articles were written for RecycleH2O.net, I was named as one of the top “Five surprising winners of the California Drought” (by WaterDeeply) and an article I wrote was also published by WaterDeeply – “How to get free recycled water in California“. If you haven’t signed up for their weekly E-mail newsletter, I highly suggest it.
“Most popular guy in town” – Edwin, Fill Station Attendant
What a month! Published 9 articles, spent a lot of time working with some stellar agencies in California and found the next agency I want to write about it. Hint – its in the heart of northern California’s wine country!
This past month, I spent some time analyzing the site and its content. The outcome? Articles about the most searched topics. This new found content stream also led me to a phone conversation with a “California Water news junkie” – Chris Austin, better known for her work on Mavens Notebook. I learned quite a few awesome tricks that I’ve put into use on the blog and honestly, its proven widely popular.
Read on below to see how some of those tricks got put to good use!
Summer is in full swing and recycled water is flowing out fill station hoses by the million gallons per week! Preliminary stats are in and we’re looking great considering drought rules have been relaxed.
In June, 4 more residential recycled water fill stations opened in the state of California.
In the three months City of Healdsburgs’ fill station was open last year, they gave away 111,947 gallons of recycled water to 26 registered customers. Self-haulers used it to irrigate grass, tree’s, flower gardens or vineyards. Recycled water is a perfect resource, saving precious drinking water supplies.

Summer started early and now the heat is on!
Warm to hot temperatures means now is a good time, more than ever – to get out and haul recycled water to satiate your thirsty plants.
Governor Jerry Brown called for the reduction in water conservation measures, but we’re still in a drought in more than 90% of the state. Recycled water is an excellent resource for landscape irrigation. Why? Well we’re re-using water for one, this water would have flowed to the ocean and honestly, your acceptance of using it at home helps the industry move forward with technologies to bring Indirect Potable Reuse or Direct Potable Reuse to fruition. 🙂
Come see a re-cap of all the articles published on RecycledH2O for the month of May.
RecycledH2O born April 9, 2015
When I first started this blog, I just wanted to get information about residential recycled water fill stations out in the public. Little did I know it would grow and expand into a name in the industry. In the past year I’ve written over 100 articles, been mentioned by name in five articles that have reached millions internationally. I’ve met people across the state, country and world – we all share the same passion. Water.
April 9th, 2016 marked our one year anniversary.

Spring has sprung and so has the number of articles. We’re in the process of changing over from rainwater harvesting to recycled water hauling. The California drought has shown signs of fading in area’s of low population, but it is still severe to exceptional in the rest of the state. El Niño rains have helped, but as reservoirs are full – we’re still faced with mandatory water conservation.
This past month we focused a lot on rain and its resources for us as home owners. Read on to see a re-cap of this past months articles, top twitter tweets and Facebook posts.
Rainwater harvesting for landscape plantings
Twenty-nine days in February meant extra time to gather information for awesome future posts. What this also means is last month was great too. You’ll soon understand why as you read on.
Four articles were published and all were well received on Twitter and Facebook. A few of them even spawned international publication on sites like Reuters and Marketwire. The best of them so far is an article titled “Confessions of a Watewater Operator” published by WaterDeeply which gained attention from a few large national water associations across the USA.

Quite the excitement at RecycledH2O since the last content roll-up. Between being interviewed by the California Water Environment Association and ending up being quoted in an article in the Huffington Post, I’d say this year is off to a great start.
El Niño & rain were common themes in these articles. Honestly, rain is the most pristine form of recycled water. Below is a quick wrap up of articles published in December 2015 and January 2016, including top Twitter and Facebook posts.
