How reliable is the recycled water supply?

Although total wastewater flows may be reduced slightly, recycled water supplies are virtually 100% reliable during drought events. This is because wastewater flows are primarily generated by indoor water uses which are not reduced significantly during drought conditions compared to outdoor uses. In addition, in cases where the recycled water use is replacing the use of potable water, this increases the reliability of potable supplies.
