Boise, Idaho has selected the site where it plans to build the city’s first water recycling plant which will purify water from businesses and local industries.

The $20 million purchase of a 76-acre plot of land will be advanced by Boise City Council. The recycled water will be used as an additional water supply for Boise.

"This purchase is an investment in our community's water resiliency," said Haley Falconer, Environmental Manager for the City of Boise.
