Why Purple Hydrents are really GREEN!

I have always been fond of the color purple. Now MICHAEL gives me (and us) another reason to pay attention to that color.

"You probably have never noticed a purple fire hydrant, but they are showing up more and more these days.." Read on!

purple fire hydrantMore and more homeowners are working on building geywater systems, many without governmental concent, or permits. The hardest part of many of these grey water projects is just too much paperwork and jumping through hoops to get the powers that be to give you the OK to build a system. The process can be different for big projects. Lots of developments these days are partnering up with water companies to offer a great way to dispose of treated waste water; using it for watering and other non-potable needs.

You probably have never noticed a purple fire hydrent, but they are showing up more and more these days. And those purple fire hydrents are reclaimed water. Water that used to just be dumped into local rivers and streams. This water is often tested cleaner than drinking water after it has been through the system. People are not using it for drinking, but why not use it for things like fire fighting and watering.

So from now on notice those purple hydrents. After all they really are GREEN!
