Mid-Atlantic Profile in Reuse

Since the 1940s when Baltimore began diverting millions of gallons of recycled water to the Bethlehem Steel plant to be reused for steel production, water reuse has helped the region’s communities meet their freshwater needs. During the 1970s, Northern Virginia’s booming population and degraded stream water quality led to the creation of the Upper Occoquan Service Authority and the longest operating potable reuse system in the United States. Fast forward to today, communities and businesses in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia continue to use water reuse as a water management tool helping with aquifer recharge, industrial cooling, and irrigating farm fields, golf courses, and other turf.
