Direct Potable Reuse (DPR) is the next frontier in sustainable water supply management. One of the biggest impediments to more widespread DPR is the lack of regulatory certainty – something that is beginning to change.
DPR rulemaking was recently completed in Colorado and is currently underway in several states including California, Arizona, and Florida. Wherever DPR regulations are under consideration, WateReuse Association State Sections and members are leading the charge. Together we have developed regulatory frameworks, secured legislation, and engaged with regulators to move processes forward. Join us to learn about the advocacy efforts that are moving DPR ahead across the country, the unique challenges and approaches to DPR in several states, and an update on the status of regulations.
