Uses of Reclaimed Water

Reclaimed water can be used for many purposes including:

  • Irrigation of golf courses, parks, residential properties, highway medians and other landscaped areas
  • Urban uses such as toilet flushing, car washing, dust control and aesthetic purposes (i.e., decorative lakes, ponds and fountains)
  • Agricultural uses such as irrigation of edible food crops such as citrus, corn and soybeans; pasture lands, grasslands, and other feed and fodder crops; and irrigation at nurseries
  • Wetlands creation, restoration and enhancement
  • Recharging ground water with the use of rapid infiltration basins (percolation ponds), absorption fields and direct injection to ground waters
  • Augmentation of surface waters that are used for drinking water supplies
  • Industrial uses including plant wash down, processing water, and cooling water purposes
