As states around the River’s lower basin face the most critical shortages, this affects all of us.

Reuse and Recycle
Cleaning and reusing wastewater is in place in many states around the country. “On-site reuse is a major opportunity for drought-affected states to do something about their water scarcity problem,” said Riggs Eckelberry founder and CEO of OriginClear, “Simply let local users reuse it at the place of use.”
“By building treatment plants, we can treat wastewater to A) recycle it so that we get more use out of it, and B) make it safer for discharging. The recycling side helps us waste less water, thus reducing the impact on water sources like the Colorado River, and the treatment and discharge side helps us preserve our water sources by not polluting them with untreated wastewater. Both very vital in the preservation of water.”
