Industrial Reuse

There are many uses of reclaimed wastewater for industrial purposes. Each may require specific levels of treatment. Evaporative cooling towers, which are usual to most industries and power stations require large amounts of make up water which can be provided by reclaimed wastewater.

Other industrial uses are for boilers, stack scrubbing, washing of patios and mechanical parts, and process water. In the same way as in the urban setting, irrigation of areas surrounding industrial plants can be done with reclaimed water.
