Reclaimed Water

Reclaimed water, sometimes called recycled water, is former wastewater (e.g. treated blackwater and greywater; stormwater) that has been treated to remove solids and certain organic or microbiological pollution in order to be used in agriculture, or to recharge groundwater aquifers. This is done for sustainability and water conservation, rather than discharging the treated wastewater to surface waters such as rivers and oceans.
