Water reuse is a principal solution to the challenges of water access, affordability, and resiliency. During this 60-minute webcast water reuse experts will discuss water recycling’s role in affordability through a national and local context. Attendees will learn about essential investments in water recycling programs throughout the nation that successfully help mitigate the water supply consequences of climate change, support economic stability and growth, and ensure broader water accessibility and affordability, particularly in disadvantaged communities. The webcast will dive deeper into a recently published Texas case study looking at onsite water recycling’s role in affordable housing units conducted by the National Wildlife Federation. Following presentations, attendees are encouraged to engage the panelists in a question-and-answer segment.
