What do you do with a continuous flow of
thousands of gallons of water that contains valuable
plant nutrients from potato processing? Recycle
and use it for irrigation water is what the
J. R. Simplot Company is doing at their Caldwell,
Idaho, plant where several thousand tons of
potatoes are processed daily for nationwide distribution

The unique system recycles waste water from
the operation by using it to irrigate 1,000 acres
of forage crops for feeding to company-owned cattle.
The system provides almost total utilization
of both waste water and solids and zero
discharge of any surface water.
