Google introduces first reuse water system in Ga.

ATLANTA (AP) -- Google has announced the first reuse water system at one of its U.S. data centers, pairing with a local water and sewer authority on the venture involving its Douglas County center.

Google said in a statement Thursday the system is financed by the internet search giant and owned by Douglasville-Douglas County Water and Sewer Authority. It is designed to help keep the Chattahoochee River clean and conserve water in Georgia.

Google says it financed construction of the authority's Sweetwater Creek Sidestream Plant, a reuse facility that intercepts up to 30 percent of the water from the local water and sewer authority's treatment plant.

Google's data centers house computers that run searches and other services.

The authority's executive director, Peter Frost, said the reuse system will particularly help during summer months.

Wow, a private funded venture that is a success. No government support so it worked without strings attached. Cheers for Google. Thanks for something positive in Georgia.
