Water Reuse Facts
- The regional water planning groups in Texas estimated that existing supply from water reuse is projected to produce about 614,000 acre-feet of water per year by 2060.
- Thirteen of the sixteen regional water planning groups (exceptions are Regions D, J and P) have recommended water reuse as a water management strategy in their 50-year plans.
- Approximately 1.5 million acre-feet of reclaimed water is projected to be available for use in Texas in the year 2060 if all recommended reuse strategies are fully implemented.
- On average this constitutes about 10 percent of all new supplies from all recommended water management strategies in the year 2060.
- Region H has, by far, the largest volume of reuse water planned for use by 2060, followed by Region C. Projected availability of reclaimed water for Regions H and C by 2060 are 282,274 acre-feet per year, and 273,289 acre-feet per year, respectively.
