AGR Las Vegas, NV
The Desert Breeze Water Resource Center currently treats up to 5 million gallons of recycled water per day. Recycling water is the practice of capturing wastewater from homes and businesses, treating it to a high quality then delivering the water for reuse. Some companies in the area, like the Las Vegas Valley Water District, deliver recycled water to golf courses, parks, and other large turf facilities, which would otherwise use drinking water for irrigation. Nevada is using the recycled water for irrigation and other non-drinking purposes to free up the limited drinking water supply. The traditional lawn is the single most irrigated crop in the United States. With water conservation efforts in mind, residents have started to look to other areas where they can save.
