SPUR Supports Non-Potable Water Ordinance

Letter supporting an ordinance that will codify process and provide grant funds for onsite treatment and reuse of water
Policy Letter
June 19, 2012

This new ordinance will allow for design, permitting and installation of systems that capture, treat and reuse water generated on site for non-potable uses. Onsite treatment systems can save significant amounts of water — between 20-75 percent of potable water in mixed use and commercial buildings — and contribute to the city's water conservation goals, which SPUR strongly supports.
