Public perception of water reuse
Posted by George J Janczyn on July 21, 2011
A report on water reuse in the April 11 issue of Water Desalination Report (requires sub) contains this gem:
“Water reuse is an indispensible component of almost every water management strategy. However, the way water is reused, and the public’s acceptance of it, varies remarkably from one community to the next. In California, one community embraced indirect potable reuse (IPR) while another, less than 100 miles down the road, disparagingly branded it as “recycled sewage.”
Guess which communities they’re talking about and who’s pushing that branding?
