Reclaimed Water


Reclaimed Water

AlexRenew’s wastewater treatment process produces clean water that can be used for non-potable purposes, called reclaimed water.

How AlexRenew Uses Reclaimed Water

AlexRenew uses our reclaimed water onsite for flushing toilets in our Environmental Center, cleaning the equipment used to treat wastewater, heating and cooling throughout our plant, and in our educational water features. Reclaimed water use reduces AlexRenew’s demand for potable water, saving over 1 billion gallons and $5 million annually.

Who Regulates Reclaimed Water?

AlexRenew’s reclaimed water system is regulated by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, which establishes requirements for system design, treatment, monitoring, permissible and prohibited uses, and reporting.
