The city of San Diego is constructing a very large water reclamation plant that will use new methods to decontaminate water for industrial and agricultural uses. The plant is being built in two stages. The first stage is under construction now. The second stage, which will add capacity, may also be used to supply water for human use after it has been mixed with regular reservoir water and retreated. This would be the first large-scale use of reclaimed water for human consumption.
