AWWA G485-18 Direct Potable Reuse Program Operation and Management
The purpose of this standard is to define the critical requirements for the effective operation and management of a DPR water program.
The EPA has released the 2017 Potable Reuse Compendium. This document supplements the 2012 Guidelines for Water Reuse and provides a current look at potable water reuse practices, including direct potable reuse.
The compendium was developed in partnership with CDM Smith and with input from state and industry partners, including the Water Environment Research Foundation, Water Research Foundation, AWWA, ASDWA, and the states of Texas, California and Colorado. The compendium addresses multiple topics, including the extent of potable water reuse in the United States, current treatment technologies and costs of potable water reuse. Additionally, it includes seven U.S. case studies that illustrate indirect and direct potable reuse approaches.
The document, available from EPA’s Office of Ground Water and Drinking Water, came just as AWWA hosted its own International Symposium on Potable Reuse in Austin, Tex., in January 2018.

In response to the many communities in the United States seeking new strategies to develop sustainable water supplies, a diverse group of water sector organizations has released a framework to help state regulatory agencies and utilities develop guidelines for safely converting wastewater into municipal drinking water through the emerging practice of direct potable reuse.
The document, titled Framework for Direct Potable Reuse, 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 Research Institute.
