  • Reduces stress on limited supply of fresh water
  • Environmental protection of waterways, reducing discharges of hyper-clean effluent from treatment of blackwater into the rivers, lakes, oceans and the groundwater.

  • Reliability of supply—Reclaimed water is a local source of water not dependent upon the whims of others in basins from which potable water originates
  • Development of water recycling projects improves local economies, provides jobs, and prevents public and private landscapes from deteriorating.
  • Important strategy for low impact development, sustainable building, and green building initiatives.
  • Provides additional points toward LEED  certification.
