$500 million investment develops 50 eco-engineered water reclamation systems
The White House recently hosted the White House Water Summit to bring awareness to national water stresses and highlight innovative solutions across all sectors to build a secure water future.
Sustainable Water is committing to deploy $500 million in capital to develop 50 eco-engineered, commercial-scale water reclamation and reuse systems across governmental, institutional and commercial market sectors. This commitment is anticipated to save 7.5 billion gal of drinkable water annually in the next 10 years.
Congratulations! You have added rainwater harvesting systems to your product and service offerings.
This places you uniquely among your peers—rainwater harvesting is a rapidly growing niche market.
Before you install a system, there are several important questions to consider:

Guidance offers framework for converting wastewater to drinking water
In response to the many communities in the U.S. seeking new strategies to develop sustainable water supplies, a group of water sector organizations has released a framework to help state regulatory agencies and utilities develop guidelines for safely converting wastewater into municipal drinking water through the emerging practice of direct potable reuse (DPR).
As the California drought continues, people are looking for new ways to save water. One such method is atmospheric water generation—technology that collects moisture from air and turns it into usable water for agriculture and other applications. Keith White, CEO of Ambient Water, a company that specializes in atmospheric water generation, recently spoke with WQP Managing Editor Kate Cline about the technology and people’s perceptions of water during drought.
