Wetlands Water Reuse

In this photo Wednesday, July 9, 2014, Chris Zachry, wetlands project manager for the Tarrant Regional Water District, watches clean water from a man made wetland project flow into the Richland Chambers Reservoir near Fairfield, Texas. As slow-moving, turbid water snakes through a man-made wetland, phosphorous and nitrates are slowly filtered out through shallow ponds full of lush vegetation and water birds until, a week later, the water runs clear as a creek directly into a North Texas drinking supply.
