The California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) recently announced that it would contribute $450,000 to support three new WateReuse Research Foundation studies. SWRCB and California’s nine regional boards are charged with protecting water quality and allocating surface water rights.
“We are pleased to once again partner with SWRCB on important research that will help to ensure resilient water supplies for California and beyond,” said Julie Minton, Director of Research Programs for WaeReuse.
SWRCB selected the following projects from the 2015 WateReuse research portfolio to support:
Potable Reuse Compilation: Synthesizing Research (15-01): WateReuse has a direct potable reuse research portfolio that includes 34 projects valued at more than $20 million. SWRCB awarded $150,000 toward a project to summarize and synthesize the results and package by topic into a cohesive document.
Scorecard for Evaluating Opportunities in Industrial Water Reuse (15-03): Past research identified industry specific and geographic influenced factors that may make reuse implementation more viable under certain circumstances. This project will develop a user-friendly tool for evaluating potential opportunities in industrial water reuse. SWRCB is contributing $200,000 to this project.
State of Irrigated Agricultural Water Reuse – Impediments and Incentives (15-08): Water reuse has been used by agriculture in several key regions safely and efficiently. With the support of $100,000 from SWRCB, this research paper will summarize efforts to date and identify potential for irrigated agricultural uses of recycled water including how to address and overcome impediments and provide incentives to achieve greater recycled water use for agriculture.
