WateReuse webcast to look at cost/benefits of reuse levels

An October webcast from the WateReuse Research Foundation is to address the question of reuse costs and benefits to help avoid communities overtreating their wastewater for reuse.

The Cost of Over-Treating Reclaimed Water: 
A Triple Bottom Line Evaluation of Potable & Nonpotable Reuse Treatment Schemes will go out on 10 October 2013.

This webcast presents the results of a WateReuse Research Foundation project to examine the benefits and costs of various levels of treatment for potable and nonpotable reuse applications. A triple bottom line (TBL) analysis was performed that includes financial, environmental, and social elements to help ensure that the right treatment process is applied for the intended use without expending unnecessary funds, energy, greenhouse gases and other social and environmental costs.

Potable and nonpotable reuse scenarios will be examined.

The presenters will be Larry Schimmoller, CH2M Hill’s global technology leader for water reuse; and Dr Mary Jo Kealy, a senior principal economist with CH2M Hill.
