  • Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority, Southside Non-Potable Water Re-Use Project
    This will allow us to reduce our reliance on unsustainable groundwater pumping and protect our aquifer as a drought reserve When it becomes operational in late 2010 or early 2011 the Southside Re Use Program will save about 2 500 acre feet of water annually equal to the amount of water used by about 7 500 homes The Water Authority is already using reclaimed industrial water to irrigate turf areas
