    I may be starting work on a project in S. CA and am looking for all the reading materials I can find on using reclaimed water in the landscape. I am not likely to be designing the reclamation system itself, just the landscaping. Any help is appreciated – book recommendations, articles, stories, etc.

    Check with your local water agency, if that does not work check with MWD or IEUA or EMWD, they should have a lot of information.
    Choose salt tolerant plants and avoid clay soil you should be ok. The biggest problem is that the recycled water is high in salt and the clay will trap the clay and poison the plants.
