How Is Reuse Being Used?

Water reuse programs have been implemented all over the world for numerous applications.  The ultimate goal is to satisfy water demands by treating water to qualities appropriate for its different uses—usually determined by regulatory guidelines set forth on a regional basis—which helps promote sustainable water resources.

As the need for, and benefits of, water reuse becomes more apparent, more and more communities throughout the world are turning to alternative solutions such as reuse for augmenting and sustaining our precious water resources.
