Water Recycle & Reuse

In areas where water demand outweighs supply, American Water specializes in the reclamation and reuse of treated wastewater. Recycled water can be used for several purposes, such as irrigation, toilet flushing, facilities cooling and industrial applications. It can also be released to recharge groundwater or streams.

We have contributed our expertise in water reuse to several innovative projects, including self-contained wastewater recycling systems in New York high-rises and a system built to help an NFL football stadium handle the halftime flush by recycling and reusing its own water.
