Wastewater reuse project takes another step
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 2015 (San Angelo Standard-Times) – The City of San Angelo, Texas is one step closer to a project to reclaim treated wastewater for drinking.
The Water Advisory Board unanimously recommended Wednesday for the city to begin pilot testing a membrane filtration system. Membrane treatment is one step in reclaiming effluent for direct potable reuse.
The first phase of the proposed wastewater reuse project, which could yield 9 million gallons of water per day, is estimated to cost $136.7 million.
