Waste water being treated then sent back to your faucet

RIO RANCHO, N.M. — The city is the first in New Mexico to inject purified, recycled waste water into its aquifer. Up to one million gallons of water will be injected back into the aquifer, but three steps happen beforehand, according to city leaders. First, you flush your toilet and depending on where in Rio Rancho you live, that water goes to the Cabazon wastewater treatment facility, where bacteria is removed and the water is made safe for irrigation, even showering.
