Opportunities for Recycling Campus Water Through Water Recycling

February 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

The presentation begins with an overview that traces campus water consumption from source to end consumptive use. It then moves into the range of opportunities and challenges involved in use of reclaimed treated sewage effluent for beneficial use in cooling towers, toilets, and other non-potable applications on university campuses to achieve substantial reductions in campus water consumption.

With this background . . . Case Study: The webinar will discuss a technical overview of the de-centralized waste water recycling plant in operation at Emory University. We will conclude with a description of financing and funding opportunities through long term “water purchase agreements” structured in a manner similar to solar photo voltaic “power purchase agreements” often used by Universities to achieve carbon reduction goals with low capital investment.

Learning objectives:

  1. Gain an understanding of the Energy Water Nexus as it applies to the microcosm of a typical campus
  2. Appreciate the range of technical challenges involved in beneficial reuse of treated effluent for reduction in non-potable campus consumption 
  3. Consider several current opportunities involving municipal reuse
  4. Review and gain an understanding of the engineering and operational aspects of the unique decentralized water reclamation system at Emory University
  5. Consider innovative funding and financing for water reclamation projects.
