Our solutions for water reuse & reclamation
With significant water scarcity issues facing communities across the United States, local governments have refocused efforts on conservation and efficiency programs. As wastewater is the only water resource of which volume increases proportionally to economic development and consumption, many cities are turning toward reuse and reclamation solutions to optimize their water costs and minimize their environmental impact.
Water reuse programs utilize treated wastewater for beneficial purposes other than the initial use, including:
- Facility cooling
- Boiler feed water
- Industrial process water
- Watering green spaces and golf courses
- Groundwater storage and recovery and salt intrusion barriers in coastal communities
- Support agricultural irrigation
- Public fountains
- Street cleaning

Customized project delivery process
Depending on the needs of the local community, the extent of our involvement with the city’s reuse program can vary in terms of ownership, financing, and risk transfer. Ranging from capital projects to DBOM/F and O&M contracts, our reuse partnerships involve a broad scope of treatment, storage, and distribution systems.
Proprietary reuse technologies
Veolia, through our Water Technologies division, develops and implements proprietary reuse treatment technologies involving microfiltration, reverse osmosis, UV disinfection, membrane treatment, and membrane bioreactors to meet reuse and zero-discharge needs.
