Water Reclamation collects wastewater from residents, industries, stormwater and agriculture runoff. It then treats it for reuse in agriculture, irrigation, and industry.

Recycling helps preserve current water supplies, while helping to protect future availability and quality. The Safe Drinking Water and Clean Water acts guide our department’s work to protect the quality of community drinking water, lakes, and rivers, including the Big Sioux.
