EPA Releases New Guidelines for Water Reuse

The EPA has released its 2012 guidelines for water reuse, which update and build on the Agency’s previous reuse guidelines issued in 2004. The document summarizes existing U.S. regulations, details water reuse practices outside the U.S. and includes case studies and information on planning for future water reuse systems. Indirect potable reuse and industrial reuse, as well as disinfectant and treatment technologies also are discussed in the document.  The document is available at http://www.waterreuseguidelines.org/.
