GE consumer survey indicates that two-thirds of Americans feel positive about water reuse

Despite the “ick factor” often associated with recycled water, two-thirds of Americans feel positive about water reuse, according to the survey of 3,000 consumers in the U.S., China and Singapore. The survey reports that Americans also think that industry and government should play a stronger role in making water reuse a priority.

This is a significant finding, considering that 36 U.S. states face water shortages in the coming year and by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population — or 5.3 billion people — will be vulnerable to water shortages.
