Climate Change Could Diminish Drinking Water More Than Expected

Climate Change Could Diminish Drinking Water More Than Expected | Environmental Security | Scoop.it

"

"Scientists previously assumed that, as saltwater moved inland, it would penetrate underground only as far as it did above ground.

But this new research shows that when saltwater and fresh water meet, they mix in complex ways, depending on the texture of the sand along the coastline. In some cases, a zone of mixed, or brackish, water can extend 50 percent further inland underground than it does above ground."

"UF’s Water Reclamation Facility processes up to three million gallons of waste water a day. With the exception of some sports/recreation areas and distal areas, over 98% of the university’s irrigation needs are served by the reclaimed water system, thereby greatly reducing campus use of potable water for that purpose."

Water Recycling and Reuse | Region 9: Water | US EPA | Environmental Security | Scoop.it

"The use of  gray water at decentralized sites (see definition) for landscape irrigation and toilet flushing reduces the amount of potable water distributed to these sites, the amount of fertilizer needed, and the amount of wastewater generated, transported, and treated at wastewater treatment facilities. In other words, water reuse saves water, energy, and money. "
