Find way to put gray water to use

Wichita Eagle

Good for the city of Wichita for examining ways to utilize about 40 million gallons of treated sewer water it discharges into the Arkansas River each day. Though there are infrastructure and operating costs associated with transporting the gray water to potential users – likely large industrial customers such as Spirit AeroSystems – this is a valuable resource that could help extend the city’s water supply. The city needs to find a way to put this resource to use. – Phillip Brownlee
