Some government regulations require using reclaimed water from sewage plant for irrigation purpose. For instance, in many places golf courses are required to use only recycled water. To balance chlorine and other chemicals added by sewage plants during the process, FWT systems neutralize, render inert and chelate toxin elements, eliminate coliforms and E coli in reclaimed water without using chemicals and turn them into beneficial nutrient for lawns, trees and crops.

     *In Summer 2009, a golf course in north Barcelona Spain has been irrigated with recycled water from nearby sewage plant, but was having problem with salts and E coli. Without using chlorine and chemicals, FWT system was able to reduce E coli from 240,000 ufc/100ml to 65 ufc/100ml and neutralized all the salts/toxin contained in the recycled water. The system was verified and approved by Spanish Government. FWT systems have since been used in other golf courses in Spain.
