Framework for informed planning decisions regarding indirect potable reuse and dual pipe systems

Posted by George J Janczyn on April 16, 2010

A Request For Proposals (RFP) recently issued may be of interest to anyone following San Diego’s Indirect Potable Reuse Study. The project is sponsored by the WateReuse Foundation as part of the Foundation’s Solicited Research Program. The Bureau of Reclamation is a funding partner for the project.

“The project objective is to develop a tool to help enable utilities to make an informed and sustainable decision regarding their investment into reuse options at the project, city, or regional level. Specifically, this tool will address issues, advantages, and obstacles in the implementation of an Indirect Potable Reuse (IPR) project, dual pipe reuse system with or without point of use treatment, or combinations therein to enable utilities to objectively plan projects against triple bottom line objectives. This will be accomplished by creating a planning framework, such as a decision tree matrix, that considers all aspects — social and legal, economic, and environmental — of IPR and dual pipe reclaimed water distribution systems that can include point of use treatment requirements.”
