Re-using Water

The word recycle is often used in the same sentence as aluminum cans, glass bottles and newspapers, however, you can recycle water as well. Reclaiming re-used water is a process where waste water is treated and use at a later date for beneficial purposes. Water from sinks, toilets and indoor pluming goes into a treatment facility and advanced treatment processes are used to remove bacteria and pollutants. Treated water goes through advanced testing to ensure that it meets strict standards by the Department of Health Services.

Using reclaimed water

Using reclaimed water is a simple, low-cost way to help conserve our fresh drinking water supplies. Using reclaimed water can be easy on your wallet as well. In most cities, there is no connection charge for reclaimed water services, and only a minimal monthly commodity fee is billed to the costumer. The minimal monthly commodity fee is can be a bargain when compared to the cost of using drinking water for agricultural and landscape irrigation.

Cities that use reclaimed water

Several cities in the United States and around the world currently use reclaimed water. Using reclaimed water is a cost-effective way to improve the city's ability to provide water for non-drinking purposes. American cities such as Tucson are using recycled water, and about eight percent of Tucson's total water deliveries are reclaimed water. The people of Austin, Texas reuse water as well. Reclaimed water helps the citizens of Austin conserve their water supply for use in the future.

In Florida, the citizens of St .Petersburg provides reclaimed water for a variety of reasons, including back up water for fire prevention, irrigation of golf courses, agriculture purposes, and landscaping. In California, the residents of Glendale use a great amount of reclaimed water. The Los Angeles/ Glendale Water Reclamation Plant has plans to supply more than 400 million gallons of reclaimed water to four large irrigation customers.

Water Drought

The recent water shortages across the United States has increased awareness for water conservation efforts. Green apartment buildings utilize water conserving features. Many green apartment buildings have rain water collection systems and gray water systems for daily functions like flushing toilets, washing cars and watering non-edible plants. Several businesses are often limited as to how much drinking water they can use. Several plants and factories are required have to purify drinking water to meet their purposes. Hotels and resorts are also beginning to use rain water collection systems and gray water systems
