WEF Sponsors Meetings To Set a Course for Direct Potable Reuse

An expert panel is working to chart a path forward for direct potable reuse of reclaimed water. The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.), National Water Research Institute (Fountain Valley, Calif.), WateReuse Foundation (Alexandria, Va.), and American Water Works Association (Denver) is sponsoring a series of meetings to facilitate this work.

On Jan. 21, the panel met to finalize the white paper, Developing a Direct Potable Reuse Framework, scheduled to be released later this year. The paper documents issues that must be addressed in the development of guidelines and provides an overview of the topics important for implementing direct potable reuse. The framework is intended to help communities and regulators develop plans and permits to implement potable reuse successfully to meet water needs.
