Non-Potable Water

Forsta self-cleaning filters remove suspended solids, and play an integral role in reducing the total suspended solids in a non-potable water system

All Details at a Glance

Non-potable water is any water not treated to drinking water standards and not meant for human consumption. Non-potable water, such as raw (untreated) water from reservoirs, is used for irrigation and other purposes, in addition to recycled water (highly-treated wastewater).

Increasing pressures on water resources have led to greater water scarcity and a growing demand for alternative water sources. Onsite non-potable water reuse is one solution that can help communities reclaim, recycle, and then reuse water for non-drinking water purposes. Onsite non-potable water reuse systems (ONWS), or NPW reuse sytems, capture and treat water sources generated from within or surrounding a building, such as wastewater, greywater, stormwater, or roof collected rainwater. The treated water is then reused onsite or locally.

Many cities use the NPW water sources such as backwash water from wastewater treatment plants, treated secondary effluent, or untreated lake water to irrigate landscapes such as parks and golf courses, reducing the demand on potable water systems. Non-potable water filtration is increasingly common for its role in achieving water conservation and sustainable use goals.
