Making the Utility Case for Onsite Non-potable Water Systems
The National Blue Ribbon Commission developed this report, Making the Utility Case for Onsite Non-potable Water Systems, to help water and wastewater utilities, local government agencies, and other interested stakeholders understand the benefits and drivers behind onsite non-potable reuse, how other utilities have addressed potential challenges, and best practices for the ongoing operation of these systems.
Onsite non-potable water system: A system in which water from local sources is collected, treated, and used for non-potable uses at the building to district/neighborhood scale, generally at a location near the point of generation.
