Communities across the country are increasingly harnessing the transformative and economic value of recycled water. Water reuse is not just a tool used in the arid West to address water scarcity, but a way for communities to better manage their local water resources to help spur economic growth and plan for the future. From supporting agriculture and attracting industry to augmenting drinking water supplies and recharging aquifers, recycled water is being used to address a diverse set of water resource challenges. This Congressional briefing will highlight how four different communities across the country are using water recycling in four different ways to bring local economic benefits. The briefing will feature: Loudon Water’s (VA) recycled water for data centers; City of Dickinson, North Dakota’s recycled water for oil and gas operations; the Orange County Groundwater Replenishment System (CA); and Pure Water Monterey’s (CA) recycled water for agriculture irrigation.
