Hassalo on 8th, the first new residential building complex within the Lloyd EcoDistrict in Portland, Ore., has its water treated and recycled through the largest natural urban wastewater system in North America. Provided by Biohabitats and engineered by Glumac, the system, which also serves an office building in the ecodistrict, was installed as a tradeoff with the city for lower utility hookup fees.
