The WEF Water Reuse Committee develops, recommends, and conducts programs to promote general understanding of water reuse for non-potable and potable uses.
The reuse of municipal wastewater for beneficial purposes is an important aspect of the world's total water resources management.
The world's water supply is a finite resource, and the practice of water reuse provides a reliable way to diversify water supply portfolios.
What Does the Water Reuse Committee Do?
Water Reuse Committee volunteers are WEF’s technical resource on water recycling, from planning and public outreach to treatment processes and distribution. Our volunteers share their knowledge by:
- Developing workshops and moderating technical sessions each year at WEFTEC®;
- Jointly sponsoring the annual WateReuse Symposium;
- Authoring articles for WEF's technical journals;
- Participating in the development of other educational materials such as books, webcasts, distance learning courses and more;
- Providing comments to WEF Government Affairs on Federation Position Statements and U.S. government regulations and policies.
When Does the Committee Meet?
The Water Reuse Committee meets each year at WEFTEC and at the WateReuse Symposium. Most committee business, however, is conducted via teleconference or email.
