In this day and age, we don’t have to guess about drinking water reuse and how to do it. We know that it works, thanks to the efforts of hundreds of academics, engineers, regulators and practitioners. For decades they have been studying water reuse — and making it a reality, in the United States and around the world.
The people quoted below are experts in water reuse technology, planning and quality. They teach engineering at American universities, conduct research on water safety, hold leadership positions in national water and science organizations, and publish widely on drinking water quality and treatment, water supply planning and engineering, and public health. Many of them helped contribute to or provided expert review on the National Research Council’s recent report on water reuse (Water Reuse: Potential for Expanding the Nation’s Water Supply through Reuse of Municipal Water).
Read what these professors and researchers have to say about potable water reuse and how it can help us meet our long-term water needs in a changing world.
