|I'm not a fan of greywater, but unless you are planning to grow food, it ain't really a problem. |
If it is, get a sample of the park water and take it to a local ag agent to see if it is safe for use on veggies. Then go from there.
Fresh water is going to be more of a scarcity issue during this new century, especially the way that we are squandering our resources and depleting watertables. Everything in the real world is a matter of trade-offs. You have to choose which ones are acceptable for you,

A new community garden is set to go in a city park. The water is to come
from a reservoir that contains water from the city streets. The park plans
to put in a filtration system and I'm wondering if there's any experience
here on how effective, and safe, that filtration system is apt to be.
No information yet on the specifics of the filtration system, so I can't
pass that along. My understanding is that the entire park is to be watered
by the same system, so the garden plots will get the same spray. The funder
is requiring organic practices, but I'm concerned that the water source will
negate those efforts.
Any suggestions on where to go for further information?
