Join us on January 30 to hear about ways that the driest inhabitated continent on earth – Australia – is utilizing water recycling.
Communities recognize that water is too precious to use just once. Water recycling has a long history for irrigation, industrial use, and purple pipes for household outdoor use and toilet flushing. In Western Australia, Perth’s Groundwater Replenishment Scheme provides purified recycled water for drinking, and other cities are now exploring this option. This webcast will cover Australia’s experience with water recycling, the future and regulatory outlook, and the emerging use of recycled water for green hydrogen, as Australia moves towards a decarbonised future.
