City of Phoenix Plans to Convert Wastewater into Drinking Water Within the Decade

In just a few years, water that’s flushed down toilets and drains in Phoenix may eventually flow through taps for people to drink.

Nazario Prieto with Phoenix Water Services claims it’s responsible and the way to go to preserve water.

“It’s a sustainable resource, and it keeps coming to us,” he explained.

The project will start at the Cave Creek Water Reclamation Plant near Cave Creek and Deer Valley roads.
