WateReuse Colorado Advancing Direct Potable Reuse to Optimize Water Supplies and Meet Future Demands
Documents are available for the WateReuse Colorado (WRCO) project “Advancing Direct Potable Reuse to Optimize Water Supplies and Meet Future Demands.” This project involved many stakeholders including regulators, utility providers, consultants, and advocacy groups with the goal of working towards advancing direct potable reuse (DPR) in Colorado. The project produced several deliverables that address how to tackle the regulatory, public outreach and perception, and technical hurdles that Colorado will face when implementing DPR. Three Technical Memorandums (TMs) are available in the links below that address each topic, and an executive summary with an overview of the project is included.
- TM1: Regulatory Development
- TM2: Communications and Outreach Plan
- TM3: Treatment Train Planning Tools and Case Studies
