Water reuse has proven crucial for many utilities to meet the water needs of their customers. With the September release of The Water Reuse Roadmap Primer, the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) provides water sector decision-makers with best practice standards to help navigate the technical, financial, social, and health-related challenges associated with reuse.

The roadmap presents recommendations from 30 leaders on water reuse implementation as identified during the Water Reuse Roadmap Experts Workshop, held February 2016 at Orange County Sanitation District (Fountain Valley, Calif.). These experts represent a broad range of corporations, utilities, municipalities, and nonprofit organizations.

It explores 12 considerations that administrators must face while mapping a route toward establishing a water reuse system. Each of these considerations — from developing reliable treatment infrastructure to boosting public acceptance to ensuring system stability after implementation —  is addressed with an action plan, procedural advice, and evaluative measures.

The roadmap represents the first step in an effort to accelerate the adoption of integrated resource management approaches by advising future reuse-focused research, training, and advocacy programs. Currently available as a free download, the resource will be expanded with additional input from sector experts and made available for purchase as a book in the fall of 2017.

WEF also offers two other resources for utility managers:
