Ocala contests reclaimed water use limits

Published August 4, 2008 Ocala Star-Banner
The city of Ocala is contesting restrictions the St. Johns River Management District may impose on reclaimed water usage.

Reclaimed water is waste water that has been recycled, treated and purified. The city produces roughly 5 million gallons of it each day and has about 18 million gallons of storage for reclaimed water. The district, which governs most of Marion County's water resources, recently proposed to restrict landscape irrigation with reclaimed water to no more than twice a week - much like irrigation for surface, ground and potable water is limited.
