Extensive reuse of treated domestic wastewater for industrial uses is practiced in Monterrey, Mexico. The aridness of the region, an extended drought, industrial development, and the population explosion necessitated this practice as early as 1955. Some industries treat and reuse water independently; others use central treatment facilities through a cooperative association. The water is used for watering gardens, cleaning of buildings and equipment, fire protection, cooling, boiler feed, and various industrial processes, with treatment for each use suited to the quality demanded. About 60 percent of the wastewater from a city of 1,000,000 is reused.
