Separator efficiency and moisture content of separated solids influence the make-up water requirements on a dairy seeking to utilize recycled water for sand reclamation. Additional water requirements range from 0 to 79 gallons/cow per day depending on the efficiency of the solid to liquid separation process. Make-up water includes any water stored in a containment structure, excluding urine. Final moisture content of the separated solids had marginal impact on the additional water requirements.; Dairy Day, 2007, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS, 2007; Dairy Research, 2007 is known as Dairy Day, 2007
