Our Shared Future
In the booming town of Silverdale, on Washington’s pristine Kitsap Peninsula, they take their water seriously. As a result, they’ve been far ahead of their time planning and perfecting a sophisticated system of water recycling that’s downright revolutionary.
Because it relies on on aquifers and rainfall, with no natural glaciation or river systems, the Kitsap Peninsula is a “zero sum” water user. They can only use what they have, in perpetuity, despite a thirsty population growing relentlessly. Hence, recycling.
In our film for Silverdale Water District, we learn from thought leaders helping lay the “purple pipe’ that will carry recycled water when the entire system comes on line in a few years. By putting in the piping now, during other building projects and improvements, the District spares taxpayers the burden of digging it all up and installing it again later.
From the massive new Franciscan Medical Center to the soccer fields of North Kitsap High, recycled water is the name of the game in Kitsap. Saving money, saving water, and doing its bit in saving the planet.
