This webinar is being hosted by the Water Reuse Specialist Group and is the first of 4-part series titled “On the Road to Chennai 2023”.  As climate change drives more weather extremes and populations continue to grow, the need for water is driving the development and implementation of water reuse policy and regulatory decisions across the United States. Thanks to growing public support and advancing technologies that are becoming more affordable, the treatment and recycling of wastewater for potable and non-potable uses continue to expand.  


During this webinar, experts will outline the latest research and implementation progress on reuse as a viable and desirable water supply option for regions throughout the US. The presentations will cover the latest research findings and focus areas, highlight the spectacular progress made in the State of California, and cover other great project examples from the rest of the country.
