Advanced Recycled Water Treatment Facilities – Coming of Age
Abstract:As the global population grows the demand for natural resources – oil, water and minerals – continues to increase. In recent years many water utilities have experienced rapid growth as cities and municipalities across the world try to manage the increasing demand for potable water as supplies dwindle. Global climate change and development of large metropolitan areas in dry areas such as the Western United States and Australia have also boosted the demand for water. This paper will discuss how five water utilities have chosen to meet increasing demands by implementing advanced recycled water treatment to provide an alternative source for a variety of novel applications, and will provide ideas for other utilities facing similar conditions.
