Drinking water savings
Reclamation provides water for secondary uses such as irrigation of parks and gardens, washing down streets and agricultural irrigation. For these uses, non-drinkable water can be used. Reclaimed water is ideal for irrigation of parks and gardens and washing down streets. By reusing water, we can save drinking water for human consumption only.
Our aim is to make the best use of a resource as important as water. Hence, some of the treated water from Alicante WWTPs is reused. This treated water is used beneficially, which is essential, as water is a scarce resource.
