Water Supplies Devastated by Drought
Wichita Falls Texas has been devastated by a three year drought and unless things change it is estimated they could run out of water within 2 years. Residents are cutting back on water usage, they have managed to reduce water usage by 1/3, but it still isn’t enough.

In response to the estimate, the city has built a 13-mile pipeline which connects the city’s wastewater plant directly to the plant where water is purified for drinking. The concept of “water reclamation” is not new; the Orange County Water District in California leads the way in the process.

The water goes through a three-step treatment process – microfiltration, to filter out all of the solids, oils and bacteria; reverse osmosis, where it is pushed through a fine plastic membrane to filter out viruses and pharmaceuticals; and lastly the water is treated with UV light to remove any remaining organic compounds.
