Water Usage Priorities in Cary, NC
Toby Coleman, Staff Writer
CARY - The bitter water pouring from Vinay Jain's tap was a water conservation measure gone foul.
For nearly five months, the Jain family home in Cary has been connected to the town's reclaimed-water system. That is the treated wastewater the town considers clean enough for suburban lawns but not good enough to drink.
By Tuesday afternoon, Public Works head Mike Bajorek seemed confident that the Jains were the only ones in Cary with treated wastewater coming out of their taps and drinking water coming out of their sprinklers.
Wastewater from the kitchen spigot and drinking water from the lawn sprinklers. Only in Cary, NC.
