What is the current state of water reuse, and where does New England stand in its adoption?
Tuesday, December 15, 2020 @ 12:00-1:30pm
As the global population increases relative to the availability of potable water, municipalities have begun to investigate methods for wastewater reuse and reclaim. Drivers such as water scarcity, high wastewater disposal costs, and the regulation of emerging contaminants have brought many of these municipalities to implement water reuse systems. This panel will discuss current approaches to water reuse, barriers to adoption within New England, as well as considerations for how water infrastructure might need to adapt in the future.
