Tailored water treatment in distributed wastewater reclamation: investigation of biological stability, and energy and nutrient recovery
Distributed non-potable water reclamation (DNWR) is emerging as a new model that couples local water resources with local users, tailoring local water treatment to the needs of the end-users. Yet, there are barriers that must be addressed—DNWR plants are likely to be near homes and businesses, and the application of the reclaimed water for uses like irrigation or ground/surface water augmentation has the potential to directly impact local residents and the environment. Because of the potential impacts to human health and utilities’ risk-aversion, communities are slow to adopt new technologies ...
