Florida is one of 14 states predicted to face high risk water shortages by the year 2050, which is why water is becoming an increasingly scarce and expensive commodity. One way to manage those costs is through the use of recycled water.
While the word recycle might make you conjure up images of aluminum cans, glass bottles, and newspapers, water is also highly recyclable. Recycled water comes from various sources, including domestic sewage, industrial wastewater and storm water runoff. The water goes through several levels of filtration and disinfection to remove bacteria and pollutants. After it’s treated, recycled water is odorless, colorless and pure enough to be used in a number of purposes. The single largest of which is landscape irrigation.
Recycled water has many benefits: it’s a great way to conserve fresh water supplies; it offers financial savings; and, it has a higher nutrient content than potable water, giving grass and plants all the nutrients they need.
Using recycled water for irrigation is becoming increasingly popular. It’s been proven to be a dependable water supply for regions prone to periods of dry weather and water shortage, like South Florida. And, it’s also shown to be reliable and successful for landscape irrigation.
