University of Texas to Use Reclaimed Water for Cooling & Irrigation

The City of Austin, Texas is scheduled this month to begin construction on a $17.5 million pipeline that will bring reclaimed water to the University of Texas, reports statesman.com.

The University plans to use the reclaimed water for it's water-intensive cooling systems and irrigation.

The project is part of the city's plan to cut back on potable water use. The city is investing $180 million on reclaimed water projects over the next three years. By 2034, city officials estimate reclaimed water can replace as much as ten percent of the city's drinking water.

"It's a major water conservation effort," said Daryl Slusher, conservation director for the Austin Water Utility. "Long term, it's an environmentally sensitive way to conserve a finite, precious, essential resource."
