Recycled water is a second renewable water resource (Colorado River is the other).

Producing and using reclaimed water for irrigation saves groundwater and Colorado River water for drinking.

Tucson Water was one of the first water utilities in the nation to begin recycling water, treating it for irrigation and other non-drinking water uses.

Experts from around the world visit Tucson Water to learn how we recycle water and to study our reclaimed water system.

Reclaimed water is specially treated for irrigation and a variety of other uses. It is not treated to be used for drinking and bathing.
