The awards were presented at a luncheon held in conjunction with the 30th Annual WateReuse Symposium
The WateReuse Assn. presented the 2015 WateReuse Award of Excellence to nine leaders in alternative water supply development during a Sept. 15 luncheon in Seattle, held in conjunction with the 30th Annual WateReuse Symposium.
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.

The firm has worked since the 1960s to advance technology and build public acceptance of recycled water
CH2M, a Colorado-based global service and engineering company, announced at the American Water Works Assn. Annual Conference & Exposition that the firm has been named the winner of the 2015 Stockholm Industry Water Award (SIWA) for developing and advancing methods to clean water and increasing public acceptance of recycled water.
Growing, intertwined water challenges confront us: Storm water is polluting watersheds, and there is a global shortage of clean water and growing demand for freshwater.

The white paper highlights four policy options for governments to consider as they look for ways to expand water recycling and reuse
As a growing number of communities around the world are encountering acute water scarcity issues, many are turning to water recycling and reuse as solutions. To help governments find readily accessible information on policy options, GE released a new white paper, “Addressing Water Scarcity Through Recycling and Reuse.”
Congressional briefing organized to demonstrate value of and greater need for funding
The WateReuse Assn. supports Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell’s recent announcement that the federal government will invest $50 million in water reuse and conservation projects in 12 western states. The funding comes from the Bureau of Reclamation’s WaterSmart program, which has provided about $250 million in funding since 2010.
Research partnership is producing solutions for water sustainability
The WateReuse Research Foundation presented its Leadership Award to Pentair on May 4, 2015 during a ceremony at the 19th Annual Water Reuse & Desalination Research Conference in Huntington Beach, Calif.
“Our partnership with Pentair is producing information and real solutions that will help communities across the country and around the world develop resilient water supplies today and for years to come,” said WateReuse Executive Director Melissa Meeker.
Researchers have identified a regularly recurring pattern of global water use in recent centuries
Population growth could cause global demand for water to outpace supply by mid-century if current levels of consumption continue. But it wouldn't be the first time this has happened, according to a Duke University study.
The certification allows homeowners, homebuilders and water and sewer agencies to use onsite home water recycling technology
Nexus eWater announced that it is the first company to receive certification to the NSF/ANSI 350 global standard for residential greywater treatment for its NEXtreater home water recycler.
The certification enables California builders, water and sewer agencies and homeowners to build drought-resilient homes by safely recycling two out of every three gallons in the home for non-potable, approved uses. The 2013 California Plumbing Code allows greywater treated to the stringent NSF/ANSI 350 standard to be reused in a range of applications.
