Water Recycling Underway In One Major City

Public officials in this region have not fully embraced water recycling as a means of supplying meaningful quantities of water.

We still like sending all that expensive, purified, chemically-treated, potable water onto our lawns, dirty cars, golf courses and into many other locations, situations and processes.

Other highly-industrialized regions are moving faster in this area, including Singapore.

As we learned after Katrina flooded New Orleans, better systems protect the Netherlands: there are best practices and technological opportunities, along with the political will to make changes elsewhere in the world, and we'd do ourselves an economic and resource management favor by paying closer attention.
