Verde Valley AZ (April 25, 2015) – As water scarcity and concerns about nutrient impacts on waters receiving discharged treated effluent increase, closed-loop recycling of water is gaining interest. In many cases, potable reuse has proven to be less expensive than deploying reclaimed water through pipeline networks separate from the potable system, and technology advances have demonstrated that potable reuse can be done safely and reliably.
On Saturday, May 9, Guy Carpenter, national manager of the Carollo Engineers water reuse/resources group, will explore national trends in potable water reuse when he speaks to the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG) from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Granite Peak Unitarian Universalist Congregation building, 882 Sunset in Prescott (two blocks behind True Value).
Carpenter will review the water quality criteria that have been developed by national health experts, and the treatment technologies and management methods being employed to meet them. He will also discuss public perception and resources that are available to help communities make sound decisions about the best way to make use of recycled water.
Carpenter is a vice president and shareholder of Carollo Engineers and leads the firm’s water reuse technical practice. He chairs the Treatment Technology Subcommittee of the Steering Committee on Arizona Potable Reuse and is an elected board member of the Central Arizona Project. He has served on the WateReuse Association board of Directors for four years, and will become the Association’s president in September.
