As California deals with a historic drought, more communities are looking to recycling sewage and storm runoff as a way to deal with the water crisis.
At the Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility in El Segundo, California, Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with Ron Wildermuth, manager of public and government affairs for the West Basin Municipal Water District.
Wildermuth says the facility prevents 45 million gallons of sewer water going to the ocean each day, and it produces five different types of water for industrial and commercial uses, including water that ultimately is used for drinking.
