What is recycled water and where does it come from?
The water that flows from your home or business through sinks, toilets, and other drains travels to a wastewater treatment plant and is treated and purified so that it can be used again for outdoor irrigation or industrial purposes. Although it looks like drinking water, it will not be used for human consumption.
