Recycled Water Program
Changing the Way Nampa Uses Water
After treatment of wastewater, many utilities simply dispose of their effluent in a river, steam or ocean. Water is too crucial of a resource to use just once. For the City of Nampa a recycled water program is the right thing for the environment and supports our goals to responsibly plan for the community to support growth, economic opportunity, and environmental stewardship. By recycling water, we have the ability to ease the demand on a limited water source by reusing water to reduce the impact water infrastructure around us.
The City of Nampa is developing a Recycled Water Program which will generate high treated, Class A, recycled water for irrigation and industrial use in the community. The recycled water system will operate under Idaho Department of Environmental Quality reuse permit that outlines monitoring and regulatory requirements to ensure optimal safety for the City of Nampa.
The City of Nampa and Recycled Water Program is dedicated to supporting Nampa residents water needs in an innovative way, that is safe and readily available to the community.
