Calculating The Cost Of Water Reuse

Black _ Veatch, Gary Hunter

The adoption of water reuse can be unavoidable due to water scarcity, but it may also be a choice. And when it comes to choices, cost is usually a deciding factor. Gary Hunter, Senior Wastewater Process Engineer with Black & Veatch, helps make sense of the dollars required for recycled water schemes in this Water Talk interview. In it, he shares three keys affecting the cost for reuse, as well as concepts and technologies that can be used to improve reuse economics. Hunter also states the case for why utilities — and not just those in the drought-plagued West — should consider reuse.
