EPA Guidelines for Water Reuse (Reclaimed Water)

EPA Guidelines for Water Reuse (Reclaimed Water) 493 0

Reclaimed water is used all over the country, but is most especially important to use in the arid Southwest part of the United States, & California, where droughts frequently plague the residents.

To make the water reclamation process easier, then, we’ve come up with this list of reclaimed water best practices and standards that you should definitely follow:

  • Reclaimed water is most often used in agriculture irrigation (46% of the time), landscape irrigation (21% of the time), and groundwater recharge (9% of the time).
  • There are many state and Federal regulations about reclaimed water. For state regulations, contact your local district.
  • For Federal regulations, refer to the EPA website.
  • Bear in mind, as well, that reclaimed water will periodically come under monitoring by the state you live in, be it on a quarterly, monthly, weekly, daily, or continuous basis.
  • The frequency of monitoring will depend on the state you live in, the severity of the drought, and the method of use of the reclaimed water.
  • While reclaimed water is often treated well enough to be approved for landscape irrigation, with no issues of disease or anything of the sort, reclaimed water does have a higher salt level than non-reclaimed water.
