The Scottsdale Water Campus will house facilities to effectively enhance the management of the City's Water Resources in the central and northern section of the City. Wastewater generated in the upper two-thirds of the City will be treated in a two-component treatment process comprising water reclamation for direct use irrigation and advanced water treatment for subsequent underground storage, recovery and reuse in the City's potable water system, respectively. Underground storage will be accomplished through the use of 150 to 200-foot deep recharge dry wells. The design criteria of operation of the advanced water treatment and underground storage methodologies are currently being piloted.
