Used Toilet Water To Irrigate Lawns

 

 

A retirement village in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, will be the first such community in that area to use recycled toilet water to water their lawns according to operators of a local sewage plant.

Sewage plant operators say that similar systems are already being used at the Sussex Skyhawks minor league ballpark in Frankford and for irrigation at Hawk Pointe Golf Club in Washington.

Reclaimed water is already being often used for irrigating golf courses and for industrial cooling systems in the United States but not for water on home lawns.
