Water Reuse

Water is too precious to be used only once.

Benefits for local communities

With the high cost of transporting water, Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies is helping more municipalities around the world turn to water reuse technologies to:

  • help attract new industry
  • support agricultural irrigation
  • water lawns and parks
  • wash streets
  • maintain their tourism industry
  • protect the environment

Wastewater is the only water resource of which volume increases proportionally to economic development and consumption.

Water reuse applications

Applications include facility cooling, boiler feed water, industrial process water, watering green spaces and golf courses, ground water storage and recovery and salt intrusion barriers in coastal communities.
