City uses recycled water to meet conservation goals

July 21, 2015

SACRAMENTO — One quarter of the city’s 72 parks use reclaimed water.

SACRAMENTO — The city of Roseville is trading potable water for recycled, according to capradio.org.

An 850-gallon tank of reclaimed water is used to irrigate trees in the city’s parks, noted the article. Workers drive a stake connected to a hose into the ground to get water underground more efficiently than surface watering can.

The parks department’s facilities will also switch to recycled water, starting with the baseball field, stated the article. The city will also provide the treated, reclaimed water to the private sector, including landscapers.

The recycled water costs a little more than potable water, shared Maurice Cheney with the city, but it is no longer being pumped into Dry Creek.

One quarter of the city’s 72 parks use reclaimed water, and this number should increase, reported the article. As a whole, about eight percent of the city’s water is reclaimed.
