Is reclaimed water safe?
Yes, but it is not designated as drinking water. Physical contact with reclaimed water has no known negative health effects, so if you are accidentally splashed or sprayed with reclaimed water, there is no reason to be alarmed. Reclaimed water must meet strict Florida Department of Environmental Protection standards for quality before it is provided to our customers. The system is supervised 24 hours a day by licensed treatment plant personnel, as well as electronic monitoring devices.
