  • Water Recycling: the Wave of the Future! - Texas Conservation Alliance
    to offer single stream recycling paper plastic metal cardboard and glass all collected in the same container and picked up regularly But what about our most precious resource water Every day tens of thousands of gallons of water are drawn from lakes in the north Texas area purified in water treatment plants piped into our homes and businesses then washed or flushed down drains and sewers The water that goes down the drain is captured and treated enough to release into creeks and rivers But what if we could return that water to our reservoirs and re use this valuable resource Is it possible to recycle water The answer is YES Recycling water is not only possible it s a great idea The future of wise water planning for Texas calls not only for smarter water use through conservation but also for water recycling There are two major ways to recycle water One of these filtering through created wetlands is already in place just minutes south of Dallas At the East Fork Wetland just minutes south of Dallas wastewater is pumped from the Trinity River into a 1 840 acre constructed wetland The wetland acts as a natural filter to remove contaminants from the water while at the same time creating habitat for wildlife and a beautiful area for recreation and education This naturally filtered water is then pumped back into Lake Lavon providing water supply and improving water quality and the aquatic habitat of the lake Another approach to recycling water is the use of ultra filtration With ultra filtration water is filtered through membranes with tiny pores a fraction of a micron in size that remove bacteria viruses and other harmful organisms It is then subjected to ultraviolet light and chemicals already used in water treatment This carefully

  • Water Recycling is All the Rage! - Texas Conservation Alliance
    usage technology meant computers but now it applies to cellphones and all manner of digital gewgaws But common ground for the three Wasn t happening until now Water recycling is all the rage today It s everywhere from Melbourne Australia to Anaheim Calif from Big Spring Texas to West Virginia And why is this happening Because of technology And common sense East Fork Wetland Water recycling uses high tech membrane filters to turn municipal effluent into clean safe drinking water The process starts with filters with tiny microscopic pores and then uses ultraviolet light and common chemicals like chlorine to reclaim and reuse water The water is then put into a lake or an aquifer and later goes back into the municipal water system Water recycling can also be accomplished by the use of man made wetlands a feat of engineering technology and nature Filtering water through hundreds of acres of native plants cleans the water through natural biological processes These much smaller wetlands provide as much water as huge reservoirs and also provide beautiful habitat for wildlife recreation and research With our population growing not just in North Texas but around the world we need to use our resources wisely That s common sense It s also good sense to address our needs in ways that are cost efficient and can be put into use at the local level in a reasonable time frame We should also keep in mind that nature provides natural capital assets that translate into economic value Trees can shade houses and cut our utility bills Wind can provide electricity In similar fashion water is a natural capital asset As North Texas grows we will have to deal with more wastewater When it s recycled and reused wastewater becomes an asset If we capture it
