Future of Water Infrastructure and Innovation Summit Focuses on Water Reuse

Date: October 31, 2020

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) hosted a summit on October 27-28 focused on the Future of Water Infrastructure and Innovation. The summit was presented in partnership with the White House Office of American Innovation, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

During the summit’s opening session, CEQ Chairman Mary Neumayr pointed to the National Water Reuse Action Plan (WRAP) as an accomplishment that she is particularly proud of. She also highlighted the creation and formalization of the Water Subcabinet, which consists of Senate-confirmed appointees from across the federal government who coordinate their work on water resource management.

EPA Assistant Administrator David Ross also highlighted the WRAP in his remarks, and noted that water recycling must be front and center in any discussion about the future of water resources management.

Albert Cho of WateReuse member Xylem provided plenary remarks for the summit, highlighting the importance of water reuse and roll of smart and digital technology in moving it forward.
