What is reclaimed water?
Reclaimed water produced at the Town’s Utley Creek Water Reclamation Facility is wastewater that has been processed through advanced treatment systems to meet stringent standards mandated by the State of North Carolina. Reclaimed water can be used for irrigation and is a “green” product because it minimizes the amount of potable water that must be produced to meet the Town’s water demands.

Reclaimed water is safe, and contact with it will not harm people, pets or property; however, use is regulated by the State of North Carolina to minimize direct human contact. Reclaimed water systems are proven technologies that have operated for years in other towns and states.
