Aldridge Gardens, a 30-acre botanical garden located on the former Coxe Estate in Hoover, is planning a water reclamation project that would take water piped 8,000 feet from the Cahaba River Wastewater Treatment Plant into the garden's existing artificial lake where it would supply irrigation needs. The plan is modeled on similar projects at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in Gainesville, Florida and the Oregon Garden in Silverton, Oregon.
