ABSTRACT
The article discusses cities that utilize reclaimed water due to environmental concerns or drought conditions. Reclaimed water is created at treatment facilities that treat sewage, then make the resulting water available for non-drinking purposes. Examples of cities across the U.S. who are exploring the use of reclaimed water are provided including Tampa Bay, Florida.
