Working for the Santa Clara Valley Water District and the City of San José, Brown facilitated an evaluation process addressing future ownership and operations of recycling facilities. Following the completion of a Collaborative Process effort in 2004, Brown continued to assist the parties in developing a mutually-acceptable agreement, including a comprehensive review of other long-term recycling agreements. In August 2008, the City and District formed the Recycled Water Liaison Committee comprised of representatives from the District Board and San José City Council to develop key terms of the Recycled Water Framework Agreement. Brown served as the planner and facilitator of that process, which resulted in a signed agreement in February 2010.
