How the use of decentralized and small systems/technology can have significant economic and practical benefits for your utility and clients. Land developers and city and county decision-makers and planners may be introduced to new options and opportunities for meeting water challenges.
Why urban water management must change and why Distributed Wastewater Systems need to be part of the menu of options considered in water system planning, design, and maintenance in order to:
- address water scarcity issues
- make least cost, high value investments in infrastructure replacement
- address CMOM by reducing flows to sewers
- address TMDL caps
- reduce potential negative community impacts associated with major construction projects.
- augment stream base flows
This webcast was organized with the support the the WEF Small Communities Committee, in collaboration with the Partners of the Memorandum of Understanding for Decentralized Wastewater Management.
