Tag: water reuse

Reclaimed water or recycled water, is former wastewater (sewage) that is treated to remove solids and impurities, and used in sustainable landscaping irrigation, to recharge groundwater aquifers, to meet commercial and industrial water needs, and for drinking. The purpose of these processes is water conservation and sustainability, rather than discharging the treated water to surface waters such as rivers and oceans.

Water Reuse Technology

Water Reuse Technology

Recycling and reuse of water have been in practice since shortly after the earth was formed, using natural methods, cycles, and filters. In recent decades, technology has been incorporated to speed up the natural processes in order to meet the ever-increasing demand for clean water. Natural processes in water reclamation

Recharging Our Water Resources

Recharging Our Water Resources

Most states in the US have had long-established groundwater management regulations that all water agencies must comply with, except for California—until it adopted the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) in 2014. Agencies outside of the state are paying attention.

“The way we treat stormwater, especially in California, is broken,” explains Joseph Charbonnet, a graduate student in civil and environmental engineering at UC Berkeley. “We think of it as a pollutant, but we should be thinking about it as a solution.” 

As water flows through urban areas, over rooftops, lawns, and

WRF Seeks Additional Proposals for Water Reuse Research

WRF Seeks Additional Proposals for Water Reuse Research

In August, The Water Research Foundation (WRF) released five RFPs for potable reuse research. WRF is requesting proposals for two more research projects for integrated water management strategies in water reuse.

AS THE PROBLEMS associated with water scarcity and declining water quality become more apparent in some parts of the county, water reuse is becoming an increasingly common option for communities to augment their water supplies. Water reuse is also becoming a more widespread option for managing wastewater rather than simply

It looks like the earth is breathing. The land beneath Southern California appears to rise and fall in two animated graphics created by geophysicists at Caltech. Researchers recently analyzed satellite radar data in order to better understand the effects of groundwater extraction and replenishment on the land. Their findings reveal
