Welcome New Members!

The WateReuse Association welcomes the following new members:

Arizona: New Holding Ponds Expand Recycled Water Uses

The City of Williams recently received a permit from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality for recycled water holding ponds that will provide a more reliable flow of water to its primary customer, the Elephant Rocks Golf Course. The city has also begun distributing recycled water to Fann Construction for repavement projects. The treatment plant can process 900,000 gallons per day and the holding ponds can hold 13 million gallons, allowing the city to provide recycled water for more uses. Read More.

USGBC Seeks Volunteers for LEED Committees, Including Water Efficiency

The US Green Building Council (USGBC) is accepting applications for professionals with expertise in building and community operation and design to serve on LEED Committees, including the Water Efficiency Technical Advisory Group (WE TAG). WE TAG recommends solutions to rating system development and maintenance questions for high volume water users, utility owners and operators, decentralized water systems, and related issues. The deadline for submissions is August 30, 2019. Buildings frequently receive LEED credits for onsite water recycling systems. California Urban Water Agencies and WateReuse are engaging with WE TAG on options for buildings that use municipally treated recycled water to receive LEED credits as well.

Join WateReuse California’s Agricultural Reuse Committee to learn about agricultural water reuse in production, planned projects, and new opportunities. An expert panel of agricultural reuse practitioners will share their experiences, lessons learned, and outlook for agriculture reuse in California. Following the panel, the audience will be encouraged to submit questions for a moderated Q&A.  Agricultural reuse refers to recycled water used in an agricultural setting. Water is treated and used again, employing effective and efficient processes to meet specific quality standards for the intended end use. Water that is treated and cleaned for agricultural reuse includes municipal wastewater, wastewater from plants that process agricultural products, and runoff from fields after irrigation (also known as tailwater).
