Director of Operations Ruben Robles stands atop one of the many secondary treatment tanks at the wastewater treatment plant for the Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District near Elk Grove on Friday. The wastewater of more than 400,000 customers flows into the plant, and treated water is discharged into the Sacramento River. The plant is going through a $1 billion upgrade to limit the pollutants it discharges while at the same time trying to figure out how to sell more recycled water to large users.
