Communities across Florida are looking toward potable water reuse as a smart investment solution to ensure potable supply and reduce nutrients discharging to receiving waters. Purified water technology is successfully and safely underway across the United States, using a wide variety of technologies for groundwater recharge, surface water augmentation, and now for direct potable reuse (DPR).
WateReuse Florida is sponsoring a series of webinars to share expert knowledge on this critical topic. The inaugural presentation will provide a national perspective on water quality, public health, and treatment methods.
Jeff Mosher will review the challenges of creating a national framework for direct potable water reuse and highlight regional potable water reuse (direct and indirect) regulatory differences. Andy Salveson will review the water quality goals for potable water reuse (direct and indirect potable water reuse), review treatment technologies for potable water reuse, and highlight the critical role of several key treatment components, including ozone, UV, and (when used) Reverse Osmosis (RO).
Andrew Salveson is Vice President and Water Reuse Practice Lead at Carollo Engineers.
Jeff Mosher is Executive Director of the National Water Research Institute (NWRI), a 501(c) 3 nonprofit located in Fountain Valley, CA.
Please join us August 16 for the WateReuse Florida Direct Potable Reuse Workshop, which includes a tour of Florida’s first DPR pilot at the Falkenburg Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility. The DPR pilot is a partnership of the WateReuse Association and Hillsborough County Public Utilities.
Lunch is included. Space is limited so please register ASAP!

One of the barriers to more widespread onsite industrial water reuse has been the lack of a comprehensive framework to assist in the initiation and implementation of projects. In response, a Water Environment & Reuse Foundation project (WRRF-14-04) has developed a standard approach and business case for onsite industrial water reuse.
This webcast will present a roadmap to help industry identify, evaluate and implement onsite water reuse opportunities. The presentation will focus on the business aspects of project implementation as the viability of water reuse projects will be strongly linked to whether or not the project provides financial benefit to the company.
This project relied on and benefited greatly from the contributions of five industrial partners:
- The Coca Cola Company
- Bayer MaterialScience (now Covestro)
- Ford Motor Company
- General Motors
These companies provided industrial water reduction and reuse case studies implemented by their companies that provide information and insights into project barriers and benefits. Based on the experience of these partners and industrial subject matter experts, a comprehensive list of common obstacles to implementation of water reduction/reuse projects and ways to overcome those obstacles will be discussed.
Tools to evaluate return on investment and to develop the business case for water projects, including determination of the total cost of water, will be discussed. Specifically, the Water Kaizen Blitz is a tool that assists companies in identifying the most efficient and cost-effective approaches to water reuse in a manufacturing or research facility. It incorporates information related to cost, as well as water use, and provides data needed to discuss water reuse opportunities in terms of business advantage. A summary of technologies that are available to industry for water reduction and reuse projects, and where they can be applied most effectively, will be presented.
