The City of Euless has begun using reclaimed water from the Village Creek Treatment Plant in Fort Worth to irrigate Texas Star Golf Course, Softball World and Parks at Texas Star.
The Texas Star Sports Complex is comprised of over 300 acres of land. Reclaimed or "recycled" water is produced from the water we use and discard every day. After proper treatment, it is ideal for many non-drinking purposes such as landscape watering. Reclaimed water is rapidly becoming a valuable resource and is a practical method of relieving the demand on potable water supplies. Every gallon of reclaimed water used for outdoor watering represents a gallon of potable water saved for drinking.
Since it is treated wastewater, it is not subject to drought restrictions and may provide additional nutrients to the turf, which makes good environmental sense. By using reclaimed water, we're working together to protect our environment now and in the future. It provides an efficient use of the region's water resources while conserving valuable water supplies for the region.
