Advanced technologies for reclaimed water
Regional agencies including Western Regional Water Commission, Truckee Meadows Water Authority, City of Reno, City of Sparks, Washoe County (Regional Team) and the University of Nevada, Reno are jointly conducting a demonstration study to research and evaluate advanced water purification technologies for use of reclaimed water for potential groundwater augmentation.
The success of this demonstration study will provide better methods for future implementation to manage region’s water resources, improve water quality, and increase water resiliency during water scarce periods.
The demonstrations will include advanced water reclamation processes including ozone oxidation-biological activated carbon filtration and soil aquifer treatment for meeting all regulatory and stakeholder requirements. Additional activities in conjunction with the field scale pilot testing of technologies include community outreach, expert panel peer review of methods and outcomes, and site feasibility investigations.
