When is reclaimed water NOT reclaimed water? When the “green” City of Pittsburg just wants you to think that it’s reclaimed!
The new John Buckley Park in Pittsburg’s Old Town is sporting official “purple” sprinkler heads and boxes throughout the grass and landscaping areas. The purple color indicates that the water being used is recycled or “reclaimed.”
But we have learned that the water being used in the park is regular old drinking water! So while the residents of Pittsburg are letting their lawns turn brown, the City of Pittsburg is watering its brand new park with drinking water.
Don’t let the purple color fool you… that’s our drinking water keeping the park green!
