Minnesota Twins Stadium to Cover 50% of Water Needs with Rainwater Recycling System
With everyone trying to do their bit for water conservation and water efficiency, it's great to hear that the Minnesota Twins' new stadium will include a rain-water recycling system. The new system will collect and purify rainwater from throughout the ballpark's seven acres, including the stands, and store it in a cistern buried deep in the ground under the outfield. That gray water will then be used to wash down the stands and irrigate the field. Pentair, the system designer and provider, claims that its filtration and purification system produces water that is as clean or cleaner than most household tap water. It is estimated that this rain-water recycling system will provide 50% of the stadium's water needs. Now that's pretty impressive water conservation!
