In recent years, potable water reuse, whether direct or indirect, has gained significant interest globally. An increasing number of facilities around the world now operate successful potable reuse processes, some for many years such as the Goreangab water reclamation plant in Namibia practising direct potable reuse since the 1960’s, or the indirect potable reuse scheme in Torreele Belgium, in operation since 2002. Although planned indirect or direct potable reuse schemes (IPR/DPR) still account for a negligible fraction of the reused water volume worldwide, many schemes are currently in planning and development phases, especially in the USA with nearly 50 Planned and constructed IPR and/or DPR projects reported by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in 2017. In Europe, despite a few success stories and the development of new research projects on the topic, potable reuse schemes remain thin on the ground. In that context, Water Reuse Europe and the American WateReuse Association are bringing together speakers from both continents who are involved in implemented – or are planning – potable reuse schemes to learn from their respective experiences in the development of such schemes with a specific emphasis on regulatory approaches, risk management and communication; and to discuss what is needed to enable wider adoption of potable reuse across Europe’s territories.

Who should attend?

Water professionals, developers, industry leaders, solution providers, technology suppliers, policy makers, researchers, end-users, and consultants involved in or with an interest for water reuse.

Join our panel of experts for a lively discussion of lessons learned through a year-long effort to interview and document the work it takes to bring multi-agency water reuse projects to fruition. Under the National Water Reuse Action Plan, the Action 2.16 team reviewed existing case-studies and literature to select and conduct informational interviews with key water reuse players across the country. The webcast will cover the lessons learned by these practitioners as they worked with Hampton Roads Sanitation District, Trinity River Authority, Pima County, and Monterey One Water. The audience will learn about governance, regulations, economic and financial barriers, technical and operational issues and leadership. The panel will share the valuable insights and replicable strategies garnered from the work.

Speakers

  • Felicia Marcus, Stanford University
  • Dr. Robert Raucher, Raucher LLC
  • Eric Rosenblum, Water Resource Consultant
  • Dave Smith, EPA Region 9

In this webcast, a panel of experts from the National Alliance for Water Innovation (NAWI) and CalDesal will discuss the state of desalination in the United States. The panel will explore current practices, technologies, treatments, on-going research, and the future role of desalination in the resiliency of the country’s water supply. NAWI recently released a new research and development roadmap series on desalination and treatment of nontraditional source waters for power, resource extraction, industry, municipal, and agriculture.
