Abstract: The State of Washington is currently in the process of adopting standards for use of reclaimed water on land. CH2M HILL recently has finished two feasibility level studies for reuse projects in western Washington. These studies investigated the feasibility of using reclaimed water for irrigation of golf courses, median strips on roads, parks, and landscaping in an around business parks. This paper presents the results of the two studies in terms of economic and technical feasibility and addresses the following questions: Why is reclaimed water needed in the wet, cool Pacific Northwest climate? What is the future of reuse in Washington? How does it fit into the water supply picture for the state?
