Research Projects

WateReuse has conducted more than 150 research projects worth more than $60 million to safeguard water quality, protect human health, reduce costs and improve efficiency. The science has advanced the implementation of water reuse around the globe. There are four types of research:

  • Scientific Investigations which provide groundbreaking new science based on laboratory and on-site testing.
  • White Papers which explore policy, regulations, planning and other social science factors.
  • Decision Making Tools which provide operators with guidelines and frameworks to improve outcomes.
  • Communications Tools which provide information and strategies for increasing public acceptance of water reuse.
