Program Description:
Recycled water is one of the largest new source of water for regions that may lack long term availability of replishenable water resources. The sources of this water include storm water, municipal and industrial wastewater; and gray water that are treated to meet a specific water use and demand. This may include treatment to meet the needs of industrial water; cooling water for power generating facilitites; irrigation; ground water acquifer recharge as well as for drinking water. The treatment of such water sources usually require a multi-barrier approach which often include a variety of different chemical, physical and biological treatment practices.

Webinar Learning objectives:

  • Understand of the principles and practices of water reuse
  • Define the role that regulations play in the acceptance of water reuse
  • Explore design Considerations and best practices for water reuse treatment facilities
  • Hear the current state of water reuse case study in India
  • Brainstorm how to win consumer confidence in Water Reuse.
