Framework for Direct Potable Reuse
Based on prolonged, severe droughts and other factors making water supplies increasingly scarce, there is a clear need to more effectively use our water resources to provide reliable high-quality potable supplies to our communities. In this context, there was considerable interest in water recycling in general and potable reuse in particular. The Framework for Direct Potable Reuse provides basic information about potable reuse and the potential value offered by direct potable reuse (DPR).
This document is the result of a collaborative effort between WateReuse, the American Water Works Association, and the Water Environment Federation with the support of an independent advisory panel administered by the National Water Reuse Institute.
