Reclaimed water refers to wastewater that can be reused after proper treatment. It is widely used in urban greening, garden landscaping, road spraying, municipal construction, industrial cooling, car washing, etc.
Washing cars with recycled water produces no pollution or waste, and it can help Zhanjiang develop a recycling economy, save water resources and raise environmental awareness among its residents. Meanwhile, it is a more affordable option for local car owners.
Reclaimed water is also currently used in Binhu Park for irrigation, and the city plans to continue to expand its use into residential communities and the downtown area.
