All details at a glance

Non-potable water refers to any water not suitable for drinking. Natural water sources like creeks, lakes and rivers are considered non-potable due to the presence of contaminants including bacteria and viruses. The phrase “recycled water” or “reclaimed water” is used to refer to the reuse of treated wastewater sources, and is also designated as non-potable water.

Non-potable water, or treated effluent from a secondary wastewater treatment plant is often stored in an open pond, reservoir or holding tank to be re-used as plant water, commonly referred to as non-potable water (NPW). Cleaning of treatment plant equipment may include spray water in treatment tanks to clean foam, spray nozzle system to clean belt presses, sprayers to clean gravity belt thickeners, and mechanical bar screens.

Non-potable water is also increasingly used for agricultural and landscape irrigation, industrial processes, toilet flushing, or replenishing a ground water basin (referred to as groundwater recharge.) Forsta automatic self-cleaning filters are ideal for non-potable water filtration to reduce sediment and some naturally occurring organic material, prior to its final use.
