Recycled Water: A Piece of the Water Conservation Puzzle
Recycled water is a very important part of overall water management and water conservation, especially when climate change can result in extreme heat, drought, and wildfires. When recycled water is used for agricultural and urban irrigation, it reduces the need to use surface water or groundwater for those purposes. Recycled water can even be used for habitat restoration. In this story, we learn about the process of wastewater treatment, and how the applications of recycled water help offset water demands in our region. (Produced by Isabel Fischer)
