Why does reclaimed water for irrigation make sense?
In the past, this highly treated wastewater has been essentially 'thrown away' by discharging it into the ocean. Yet, studies showed us that the typical Boca Raton customer poured as much as 70% of their drinking water each month onto lawns and landscaping. reclaimed water is a way to conserve a valuable resource by reducing the amount of drinking water used as irrigation, and the IRIS program offers other benefits to customers at the same time.
