The Home Gardens Sanitary District is a California public agency formed to provide wastewater services to our customers in a reliable, safe and cost-effective manner. We are required to comply with the State Water Resources Control Board regulations and strive to not have any sewer system spills. We have operated since 1957 and maintain our system so that it is reliable and safe. We also have some of the lowest sewer charges in the area and operate with very low overhead.
Approximately 600,000 gallons of wastewater are collected each and every day from the Home Gardens Community near Corona, then transferred to the WRCRWA water treatment plant in the City of Corona.
Treatment of wastewater at WRCRWA is accomplished using three separate, consecutive processes. The overall process is focused on purifying the water, and is accomplished in part by removing and handling solid waste products contained in common residential wastewater.
Purified wastewater is used for irrigation of parks and schools, and recharge of local groundwater basins. Recycled water not used locally is discharged to the Santa Ana River. Biosolids removed from the wastewater are dried and hauled to Arizona for use as soil amendments.
