Why is water recycling important?
For every gallon of recycled water used to irrigate public places, such as Finley Park, a gallon of precious drinkable water is saved. Other benefits of using recycled water for irrigation include less need to release recycled water into local waterways, the development of a new water supply with a locally controlled, reliable source that is environmentally responsible - it is the same concept that drives the recycling of bottles, cans and paper.
