Recycling Water

The clean effluent produced in wastewater treatment plants can be reused on city parks, sports grounds, agricultural land, and gardens. The sludge produced is very rich in nutrients and can also be dried out and used as a fertiliser or soil conditioner. It is essential to make sure that all the bacteria and chemicals are removed first though, and this can be an expensive process.

You can help by never letting any solid waste, chemicals or fats and oils from cooking go down the kitchen sink. The cleaner the wastewater, the easier it is to recycle.

In some countries, like the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia, where there are cities with very large populations and only a limited water supply, wastewater is even recycled back into drinking water!
