Wastewater Reclamation and Reuse: Water Quality Management Library, Volume X is a group of studies around the situation in Orange County in the early to late 1990s, unveiled due to increasing pressure from the public about water resources, giving rise to ecologically correct processes in reuse that work with nature.
See case studies on what wasn’t working, what was proposed, what was met with speculation and what actually worked with the ongoing involvement of the general public in waterworks issues, especially involving black water produced by municipalities and industries that were threatening the biodiversity of California’s forests.
With sewage and dumping becoming a major concern among Californians, measures were taken to work with the situation in favor of both people and the environment, reusing greywater and reclaiming blackwater safely above and beyond EPA standards.
Californians desired the reclamation of water resources, it was done, and this is the document that their efforts has left all of humanity, in the hopes of a more sustainable and self-reliant future that works in stewardship of the Earth, thinking globally, while acting locally and taking action, immediately.
