Recycling Water Project

In February 2003, Santa Clara University and the city of San Jose decided to pursue a Recycled Water Project for irrigation together. Although two plant species have been found to be incompatible with the water, we've seen no problems of using recycled water for irrigation related to humans or animals.

Only a year after the initiative began, the University's water bill decreased over 30%, and in a period of 7 months alone, over 570 million gallons of recycled water were used for irrigation.
