Experience and safety
Our customers have been using King County’s recycled water for decades. Like water in rivers and lakes, recycled water is not treated for drinking. It’s great for other things.
Two-thirds of the leafy greens for the United States are grown in Monterey County in California. Recycled water supplies most of the irrigation water for these crops, including for crops that are certified organic. King County’s “Class A” recycled water is similar to the quality of water used in Monterey.
King County’s recycled water is crystal clear and odor-free. It’s safe for people and pets, even if it gets on a scrape or is accidentally swallowed. Like lake water, King County’s recycled water is not treated for drinking. It’s safe to use for other things.
