PHOENIX – A Nov. 16 Cronkite News story about wastewater monitoring using artificial intelligence misstated how Phoenix’s wastewater is treated and how much of it is recycled. After undergoing treatment and testing, 97% of Phoenix’s wastewater is recycled and used for irrigation, cooling for the Palo Verde Generating Station, replenishing water resources underground, contributing to the Tres Rio Wetlands.
