The Heraldsburg, Calif., city council on Monday approved the budgeting of $1 million to build a 500-foot pipeline that will transport highly treated wastewater for irrigation, The Press Democrat reported.

The pipeline will be part of a system that will irrigate a golf course, parks and vineyards.

Heraldsburg currently discharges wastewater from its treatment plant into a pond that flows into the Russian River.
