WateReuse Announces Funding for New Slate of Research Projects

Date: May 15, 2015

Nine of the new projects are funded under the WateReuse Research Foundation’s Principal Program, which means research contractors will be selected through a competitive process. Four of the projects are funded under the Tailored Collaboration (TC) program, which allows Foundation members to propose and receive funding for research.

WateReuse is investing $1.5 million in the Principal projects, $460,000 in the TC projects, and the balance of the funding comes from in-kind support. Eight of the projects are funded through the Direct Potable Reuse Initiative, an ongoing effort to advance DPR as a water supply option. The remaining research projects address industrial reuse, agricultural reuse, desalination, and regulatory issues.

WateReuse will establish a technical peer review committee for each new project and requests for proposals will be released for the Principal projects later in the year. Technical experts interested in supporting the peer review of the new projects can submit an application to the Research Foundation.
