Hendersonville Sweepers Go Grey

July 31, 2008

Water conservation is a real issue with residents of Hendersonville.  But, don’t be alarmed when you see the street sweepers spraying down the streets in your neighborhoods.  They are using non-potable water.  This grey water is actually reclaimed water from the area’s toilets, sinks and drains and is undrinkable.  Grey water is also used to water the city plants along Main Street.  Even though the recent rainfall has fended off the mandatory restrictions the city was looking to impose, Hendersonville residents are still encouraged to conserve water as much as possible to avoid putting these restrictions into effect in the future.
