2023 Technical Program & Proceedings

Potable Reuse Symposium

July 24 & 25, 2023

The Potable Reuse Symposium focuses on innovation, key questions, challenges, solutions, and areas of acute interest most relevant to the advancement of potable reuse. The Symposium is designed to engage attendees not simply as listeners in the audience, but also as active participants in facilitated discussions.

Biological Treatment Symposium

July 25 & 26, 2023

The Biological Treatment Symposium features case studies on how utilities are implementing new and improved biological treatment to solve water challenges. Sessions address ways to meet regulatory requirements and ensure public health during design and implementation. 

Symposium Facility Tour

Potable Reuse & Biological Treatment Symposium Facility Tour offers an additional opportunity for in-depth, hands-on learning. Registration and fee is required, these items are not included in the Full Conference registration.

2023 Facility Tour  
T1 - South Jordan City's Pure SoJo Demonstration Project 
Tuesday, July 25th | 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.   

The PureSoJo Demonstration facility is a 10-gpm, non-RO, CBAT-based process train that is purifying MBR-treated wastewater to drinking water quality. The facility aims to provide information and experience to support future DPR regulations in Utah and the US, and provide public outreach and education promoting DPR as a viable water supply alternative. During the tour, you will explore the backstory of how the pilot came to be and details on the individual processes.
