Drought May Lead More Cities To Turn Wastewater Into Drinking Water

Bill Hunt, executive director of operations for the Orange County Water District, looks out at three large basins of water in Anaheim.

“It’s an aquamarine color. The water is brilliant and clear,” says Hunt. “It’s very inviting. On a warm day, you want to go in it. It’s beautiful water.”

Hunt is not describing a tropical ocean, but recycled sewage.

It’s replenishing the district’s large groundwater aquifer — which is the source of drinking water for 2.4 million people in Orange County.

As drought grips most of Texas, researchers are combing the records to map brackish groundwater in the state’s 30 aquifers — hidden resources that could help quench the state’s long-term thirst.
