In 2022, the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority (Airport Authority) captured, treated, and reused 812,500 gallons of stormwater. This water, which would otherwise have run off into San Diego Bay, was used to heat and cool buildings at San Diego International Airport
, thereby reducing the amount of potable water used for this purpose.
