‘Toilet-to-Tap’ Program Recycles Wastewater

tap waterA second Texas city has begun using treated wastewater to boost drinking water supplies as the state struggles with drought.

Wichita Falls is now recycling millions of gallons of wastewater, CBS News reports. The toilet-to-tap program ensures the water is purified to meet government drinking standards; the water is then sent to a treatment plan for additional purification.

Wichita Falls is operating under a Stage 5 drought.

Other Texas cities are moving ahead with similar technology in response to the drought, the second-worst in Texas after the 1950s Dust Bowl.

As supply shrinks and demand grows, Texas’ water woes are pitting companies such as Dow Chemical against agricultural and other water users, the Texas Tribune reports.
