Jan. 12, 2018 — This week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency went live with a 2017 Potable Reuse Compendium, which provides a technical compilation of the current state of potable water reuse in the U.S.

The 2017 Potable Reuse Compendium covers multiple topics including the extent of potable water reuse in the U.S. and the world, the costs of potable water reuse, and the treatment processes used in potable water reuse. Additionally, the compendium presents seven case studies on indirect and direct potable reuse facilities in the U.S. These case studies illustrate how and why facilities implement potable water reuse.
