How is reuse water different than downstream water?

It isn’t—water reuse already happens. Usually water that has been treated from the wastewater treatment plant is released into the nearby stream. Communities downstream then pick that water up and transport it to a drinking water treatment plant, where it is treated, tested and then distributed for use within the home or business. To address water rights and concerns for biological and pharmaceutical contaminants, regulations and processes specifically for reuse water are being developed.
