*Reclaimed Water Interruption Notice*
GRU is making critical improvements at the Main Street Water Reclamation Facility to improve service, quality and reliability. The work will be performed in phases over the next year. During this time there will be intermittent reclaimed water interruptions, necessary to perform critical work and maintain the safety of construction crews. When practical, GRU will plan outages during the day and restore service in the evenings. GRU does not guarantee the continuous availability of reclaimed water but strives to minimize service downtime. The project will help improve the operations and reliability of our reclaimed water system. GRU will post notices for extended outages on this web page.
Reclaimed Water FAQs
Water is Too Precious to Use Only Once
Providing clean, safe drinking water is a top priority for GRU, and it is important to conserve this valued, limited resource wherever possible. That is why GRU reclaims water for use in commercial and residential irrigation.
What is it?
Reclaimed water is wastewater that has been highly treated at GRU’s water reclamation facilities to be clean and safe for irrigation. Where available, the use of reclaimed water reduces the amount of drinking water that is pumped out of the ground, saving that water for future generations.
