Not much has been said about reclaiming water, so I don't know how much is (or isn't). I know a lot of irrigated water is wasted. Water meters would quickly ensure shop/house owners would quickly fix the broken sprinklers! :-)

You're not metered?! Holy cow! Metering is the *best* method for conserving water...

I don't think Texas uses much reclaimed water. Maybe in the desert regions, but it's mostly Arizona, California, and Florida. I think I read recently that something like 80% of all reclaimed water use in the country is in these three states. Actually, in Arizona the largest user of reclaimed water isn't the golf courses, but the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station--they use it for their cooling water.
