2021 WateReuse Symposium Summary White Papers
In March 2021, the WateReuse Association convened the virtual 36th Annual WateReuse Symposium, which included live roundtable discussions with facilitated breakout sessions. Each breakout session focused on one aspect of the broader roundtable discussion. A series of summary white papers were produced to capture the discussions.
The Water Reuse 101 roundtable brought together experienced practitioners and researchers to discuss current water reuse practices, regulations, and research with a focus on geographical drivers for reuse and the importance of communications. The roundtable was sponsored by Tetra Tech.
The Recycled Water as Drinking Water roundtable explored considerations for purifying recycled water to meet drinking water standards, including treatment technologies, operations, monitoring, public trust, and regional differences. The roundtable was sponsored by Carollo.
The Implementation & Operation of Water Recycling roundtable explored employee development and training, public partnerships, pilot project development, funding for continued operations, recruitment, and natural systems. The roundtable was sponsored by El Paso Water and Clean Water Services.
The Water Recycling and Public Policy roundtable included experts from federal, state, and local governments from across the country for a discussion of how policy decisions such as regulations, funding support, and incentives can facilitate more widespread water reuse. The roundtable was sponsored by Suez Water Technologies.
The Water Recycling & Public Health roundtable discussed water recycling and public health from the perspectives of science and specifications, contaminants of emerging concern, pilot demonstration projects, communications and public outreach, medical community engagement, and research. The roundtable was sponsored by Brown and Caldwell.
The Regional Approaches to Water Recycling roundtable discussed varied regional approaches to water recycling from the perspectives of the Southeastern, Northeastern, Midwestern, Northwestern, South Central, and Southwestern United States. The roundtable was sponsored by Xylem.
