The money will be used by WE&RF to identify, prioritise, solicit and select for funding studies on potable and non-potable reuse. California has a policy mandating that it increase the volume of reuse water in the state by 200,000 acre-feet a year (676,000 m3/d) by 2020, and 300,000 acre-feet a year (1 million m3/d) by 2030.

The funding will support research projects that address industrial, agricultural, and produced water reuse, and potential topics include health, social, and environmental issues.
