As the municipal water reuse market experiences unprecedented growth and geographic expansion, where are the best opportunities? Bluefield Research has tracked over 700 reuse projects across 20 states. For the first time, this includes projects in two new states, New York and Oklahoma, reflecting the spread of reuse outside of its core markets such as California, Florida, Texas and Arizona. Learn what’s changed, how reuse “pays off” for utilities, and how the market is poised to take off on a large scale.
This webcast will address:
- The impact of decentralized reuse as large commercial property owners, such as Salesforce, look to invest in onsite treatment;
- Municipal investment in potable reuse, with a case study of El Paso, Texas, the largest city to adopt direct potable reuse;
- Regulatory and geographic shifts for water reuse; and
- Innovative financing strategies and prospects for return on investment.
