  • Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant
    Improving The Quality Of Secondary Wastewater For Indirect Potable Reuse—From Pilot To Full Scale Plant

    In spite of the recent abundance of water, many of California’s aquifers continue to balance on the edge of water scarcity. Decades of overpumping have reduced the amount of ground water available to supplement surface water resources diminished by drought. The Pure Water Monterey Ground Water Replenishment Project (Monterey Pure), addressed the need to replenish a local aquifer, by piloting Advanced Water Treatment (AWT) processes, to determine the best method to convert secondary wastewater into a pure water resource.
