What is Reclaimed Water?

Reclaimed water is the result of wastewater which has been highly treated and disinfected and reused. Reclaimed water is essentially free of bacteria and viruses. Reclaimed water is ideal for irrigation, but not suitable for human or animal consumption.

No negative effects have been noted or reported as a result of exposure to reclaimed water. However, remember that: (1) irrigation should occur at a time when human or animal contact is least likely; and (2) the effectiveness of any program relies on people, equipment and good common sense.
