Workshop: Expanding Your Supply: The Onsite Reuse Revolution is Here! (Austin, TX)

  • WaterNow Alliance Annual Summit AT&T Conference Center Austin, TX (map)

From drought in the West to flooding in the Southeast, communities across the U.S. are looking to address water scarcity and increase resilience with onsite non-potable water reuse systems. For the last few years, a National Blue Ribbon Commission for Onsite Non-potable Water Systems has been working to foster a policy environment, and develop model standards and local rules to make it easier for utilities to support wider adoption of reuse systems locally and ensure health and safety. This panel, including some members of the Blue Ribbon Commission, will make the case for treating graywater, black water, stormwater, and rainwater runoff with onsite reuse technologies in all corners of the U.S.
