Survey Says Residents Favor Potable Reuse Two to One
Officials Support Joint Feasibility Study
Bolstered by survey results that showed residents favor, by two to one, the idea of purifying wastewater so it can be reused as drinking water, 11 officials at the recent Tri-Valley Water Policy Roundtable expressed support for a 12-18 month feasibility study on purifying wastewater so it’s drinkable. Known in the industry as indirect potable reuse, this water supply option was the only one discussed at the meeting that gives officials local control. Other options, like removing salt from ocean water, require regional partnerships (more time and money to implement). Roundtable members also agreed to continue to meet periodically and to engage with the community regarding indirect potable reuse and other ways to enhance the Tri-Valley’s water supply reliability.
