used for over 25 yeras. Given the high water and sewer costs in certain
areas, these recycling systems can be cost-effective. Dual water delievry
piping systems are necessary
Greywater separation and treatment/reuse systems are also viable, as noted by
others, dual wastewater and water delivery piping systems are necessary
Wastewater trteatment and reuse for irrigation and cooling tower purposes is
another approach that avoids the dual piping requirement of the previous
Economics, owner preferences, water availability, purified wastewater
disposal issues, climate/soils and land use are the major issues that drive a
decision for a particular site. Costs and operation requirements are
considerations in system choice. Constructed wetland treatment systems can
be integrated with any of these approaches and can be blended with the
