Positive Water Impact: Ingredient, Impact and Reuse
Social Water Benefits:

- Providing water to private household water storage tanks
Environmental Water Benefits:
- Water to be reused by food processors for agriculture and future production, creating a circular economy rather than further depleting finite resources
- Environmental projects, consumed by people, and used for WASH projects (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene)
- Groundwater and municipal water replenishment
About the Customer(s): The Californian drought is affecting millions of people across the state. With water now inadequate for agricultural, wildlife and urban needs, the capabilities of farmers, fishermen, business owners and residents are being affected. Reservoirs are extremely low, and hydropower is restricted due to the continuing harsh and dry conditions.
