Reclaimed water

The 2018 International Residential Code (IRC), published by the International Code Council (ICC) defines reclaimed water as: ‘Nonpotable water that has been derived from the treatment of wastewater by a facility or system licensed or permitted to produce water meeting the jurisdiction’s water requirements for its intended uses. Also known as “Recycled water.”’
