Challenges and Opportunities of Using Recycled Wastewater for Managed Aquifer Recharge

Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) is a common approach for addressing both water supply and environmental issues. Treated wastewater is increasingly seen as a renewable, locally managed, and drought-resistant source water for MAR projects. In this webinar, NGWA Director of Science and Technology William M. Alley, Ph.D., tracks the story of this development, examines the pros and cons, and explores its future potential. Along with the technical issues, learn:

  • How the phrase “toilet-to-tap” arose from a MAR project in California
  • How beer brewing has converted skeptics to recycled water aficionados
  • The origin of purple pipes for nonpotable uses
