The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) maintains the largest and most comprehensive databases of permitted reuse systems in the world. Domestic wastewater treatment facilities (0.1 million gallons per day and greater) that provide reclaimed water are required to submit annual reuse reports, using DEP Form 62-610.300(4)(a)2, to DEP as well as the applicable water management district. These annual reports are the basis for DEP’s reuse inventory database, from which a reuse inventory report is compiled and published annually.
Hard copies and electronic versions of inventory reports from previous years and data from previous years may also be available.

Reuse Flow Per Capita for the Nine States that Reported Having Reuse in 2006
Reported Reuse1 in Millions of Gallons Per Day
Reuse per Capita in Gallons per Day per Person
1From the Water Reuse Foundation National Database of Water Reuse Facilities Summary Report, 2006. 2The reuse data for California was updated in the National Database using data from California’s 2002 reuse survey, which was previously missing. So while the 2006 Summary Report reported 87 MGD of reuse for California, the actual reuse flow was more like 580 MGD. 3The state of Washington reported reuse systems and reuse pipe, but no reuse flow as of 2006.
