Say Hello to Peggy and Maggi!


Maggi and PeggyMany of you probably already know Peggy Avila and Maggi Walker, the City's recycled water and cross connection experts. They are here to assist all recycled water users with implementation guidelines, site issues, and conduct inspections to ensure that your site is in compliance with the guidelines set by the State for recycled water use.


Where recycled water is used, it is necessary for Peggy and Maggi to conduct an annual inspection of the recycled water system. This inspection ensures the recycled water system and the domestic water system remain separate. Annual testing of the backflow assembly is another item Peggy and Maggi monitor.  


Peggy and Maggi are available to answer questions and assist you with site issues. They can be contacted at 564-5575 or 564-5406 or via email: or
