Smarter Business: Greening Advisor


Wastewater recycling systems

Almost half the world’s population lives without a reliable supply of clean drinking water. In the United States, many sources of freshwater are being depleted faster than they can be recharged by natural processes. Recycling treated and disinfected wastewater from showers, baths, laundry and bathroom sinks for nonpotable uses, such as irrigation and toilet flushing, can help reduce pressure on drinking water resources.

See the Water Use section of this guide for case studies and further resources on wastewater recycling.
