The 2018 Water Research Foundation Conference on Advancing Reuse and Integrated Water is quickly approaching. The event will address the challenge of integrated water management and reuse, and help communities prepare for the future using innovative approaches and solutions for managing our water resources. The Research Conference includes multiple tracks of sessions, poster presentations, and keynote speakers.

David Sedlak will be joining the renowned list of this year’s keynote speakers, which also includes Peter Colohan (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and Peter Grevatt (U.S. EPA). Sedlak is the co-director of the Berkeley Water Center and deputy director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Reinventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure. His plenary session, Mainstreaming Potable Water Reuse in the United States: Strategies for Leveling the Playing Field, will review the outcomes of a meeting at the Johnson Foundation to discuss the steps needed to assure potable water reuse would be considered by water resource planners as a means of enhancing water urban security. Joined by Ted Henefin (Hampton Roads Sanitation District) and the EPA’s Grevatt, they will discuss the recommendations to move forward with implementing water reuse and how to overcome institutional barriers.
