NEW WASH RACKS HELP CALTRANS RECYCLE WATER YEAR-ROUND

SACRAMENTO – In this News Flash, learn how Caltrans is being “water smart” all year long with our new truck wash racks at the Peddler Hill Maintenance Station east of Sacramento. Crews use treated and recycled wastewater from snow removal equipment for de-icing brine during the winter and other maintenance activities in the summer.
