Arizona panel makes water-reuse recommendations
18 Dec 10 by desalination
More than 60 recommendations including many on wastewater reuse have been forwarded to the governor of the US state of Arizona by a “Blue Ribbon” panel formed by the governor, Jan Brewer, in 2009.
In its final report, dated 30 November 2010, the 40-member Blue Ribbon Panel on Water Sustainability examined the current technical, legal and policy issues surrounding the promotion of water conservation and recycling in the state.
The panel came up with 18 sets of recommendations, divided into 63 sub- recommendations on public perception, public education, research needs, regulatory impediments, efficient use of water supplies, expanded use of rainwater and stormwater, the interface between water and energy, funding and incentives, and more.
Among the recommendations are:
Although this report now moves forward to the governor and the legislature, the panel warns that budget cuts may make it difficult for the relevant agencies to implement its recommendations.
