What is Recycled Water?
Recycled water starts out as wastewater. After arriving at our wastewater treatment plants, the water is then purified so it is suitable for landscape irrigation and other non-drinking purposes. Wastewater is processed through biological treatment, filtration, and a disinfection system before it becomes recycled water for landscape irrigation. A dedicated system of pipelines is constructed for recycled water, which is completely separate from drinking water pipelines. These pipes are colored purple to distinguish them from drinking water pipes.
