Thanks to the efforts of hundreds of engineers, academics, regulators, and practitioners, we don’t have to guess about drinking water reuse and how to do it. We know that it works. 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 Wastewater).
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.
