Environmental and Recreational Uses

Environmental and Recreational Reuse

Environmental and Recreational Reuse refers to a variety of activities that in general enhance the overall quality of the environment where they are implemented. This can include activities such as creation or restoration of wetlands, creation of water bodies for recreational or aesthetic purposes and stream augmentation. In particular, reclaimed water's use in wetlands can be particularly important since healthy wetlands can serve many purposes including water purification, water preservation and wildlife habitats.
