Our everyday activities impact the environment and water quality. We extract groundwater, build reservoirs, and use water for a variety of domestic, industrial, and agricultural purposes. After the water is used, we then treat it and refer to it as wastewater. The term wastewater is used because the main purpose of this water is to carry away waste materials before returning back to waterways. Businesses, schools, and residential areas can use this water again and again before it passes back into the natural water cycle. Water reuse uses tested and reliable technologies to speed up the work of Mother Nature.
