To solve the current challenges in water management, such as scarce resources, climate change and the need to preserve ecosystems, it is necessary to implement new solutions that have a global vision of the integral water cycle. In this context, water reuse is one of the key components in achieving new, more efficient, reliable and sustainable water resources.
USES OF NON-POTABLE WATER
Water from the sewage plants, once treated, can become a new water resource for those uses that are not so demanding as those of drinking water, such as street cleaning, irrigation, industrial uses or parks and gardens.
Aigues Sabadell also uses efficiently groundwater resources. The integrated use of both waters, known as non-potable water, preserves drinking water reserves and also is an independent resource from conventional.
NON-POTABLE WATER INFRASTRUCTURE
NON-POTABLE WATER FUTURE
Continue developing the non-potable water network in order to replace drinking water in all the suitable and allowed points (Royal Decree 1620/2007 & municipal regulations) such as garden and parks irrigation, street cleaning, discharge of toilets or industry
The Master Plan (2014-2024) has been designed and agreed with the services of Sustainability and Ecosystem Management, Public Works, Parks and Gardens and equipment of the City of Sabadell and Aigues de Sabadell.
