With the uncertainty of surface water resources and dwindling groundwater aquifers, recycled water has received considerably more attention, as it is the only water resource increasing in volume.
While broad-based water recycling or reuse programs have become sound public policy and have been widely adopted in regions of the globe facing water scarcity, a relatively small percent of US utilities have adopted this renewable resource.
This is about to change. Not only is the EPA making steady progress on a Water Reuse Action Plan (WRAP), but intelligent water systems are providing data and insights to show how conservation and reuse are enabling utilities to use the right water for the right use, reducing their energy and infrastructure requirements.
In this first session of a three-part series, panelists will share inspiring progress made to date, the economics of water reuse and the collective intelligence being made available to support their potential incorporation of centralized and decentralized reuse. Each panelist provides essential knowledge and experience to set the context for the three-part series.
Attendees will learn:
- History and scope of water reuse movement and applications for large and small water systems
- Drivers for centralized and decentralized water reuse
- Steps to assess the relevance and suitability of each
- Graham Symmonds, Water Industry Expert, GlobalWaterWorks
- Felicia Marcus, Director of the WateReuse Association, Water Policy Group
- Melissa Meeker, CEO, Water Tower of Gwinnett County
