Updated: Isn’t this a waste of water that should be available for community uses?

  • June 13, 2016

Even after Kalahari is operational, the City will still have more than 26 million gallons per day of available capacity. The City has master planned water use for the ultimate build-out of the City based on a water demand per acre. The future land use for this property was planned to be a commercial development, which is what Kalahari is considered. If it chooses to utilize the City’s water reuse system, Kalahari will be able to reduce its overall impact on the City’s potable (drinkable) water supply. Under state law, Kalahari has the right drill its own wells to supply its water needs.
