The article focuses on a demonstration project launched by San Diego, California to test the viability of potable water reuse. The Advanced Water Purification Facility which invites people to take virtual and actual tours of the facility along with multi-pronged education program is mentioned. The efforts of the city to increase the use of reclaimed wastewater is also cited.
