California: SFPUC Launches Its Larges Onsite Water Reuse Project

WateReuse Association member San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) last week celebrated the launch of its largest onsite water reuse project, which will divert foundation drainage from an underground rail station and recycle it to provide steam heat for 180 downtown buildings. Supported in part by a $500,000 grant from SFPUC, Clearway Energy constructed a 1,000-foot pipeline and installed an onsite water treatment system to treat the water to a quality suitable for use in a district steam heating system. The system reduces Clearway Energy’s water consumption by 30 million gallons per year. Read More.

Engaging the Public Health Community on Water Reuse? Check out Our Online Resources

Although water reuse is a proven, science-based process that has been used safely in communities around the world for decades, the public is often skeptical when the concept is first introduced into a community. To build acceptance among medical and health professionals, WateReuse has launched the Medical Community Initiative and begun developing resources to support members in engaging with the public health community. Visit our website for videos, articles, and presentations that support engagement with medical professionals. New tools are being developed so check back for updates.

Research Update

New Potable Reuse Research Addresses Priority Issues

The Water Research Foundation released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to develop a Potable Reuse Demonstration Design & Reuse Communication Toolbox and announced that it will soon release RFPs for six new water reuse research projects that will be co-funded by the California State Water Resources Control Board and contributors to the Advancing Potable Reuse Initiative. The topics for the six upcoming RFPs include pathogen log removal, real-time collection system monitoring, blending water sources, UV/chlorine advanced oxidation process, antibiotic resistance, and managed aquifer recharge.
