Water / Wastewater Reuse
Due to population growth and aging infrastructure in communities around the country, water availability and quality are under increased pressure. Meeting the demand for water today requires thinking beyond conventional water supplies.
Water reuse—the use of treated wastewater or reclaimed water—is becoming more important for beneficial purposes such as agriculture and landscape irrigation, industrial uses, and even drinking water. This valuable process increases communities’ available water supply and can lead to financial and resource savings. But before you can reap the benefits of the reuse process, you need to determine how it fits into your current infrastructure, identify your planned reuse functions, and calculate the financial implications. Whether you need to implement a new reuse program or retrofit an existing system, Kimley-Horn can provide the right solutions tailored to your needs.
