Pros and cons: Understanding the trade-offs of alternative water supplies. More water utilities than ever are looking at diversifying their water supply portfolios using “alternative supply strategies,” such as onsite reuse, wastewater reuse, seawater/brackish groundwater desalination, and conservation to meet future demands. But what is there to better understand and hopefully anticipate before implementing a given approach? We need your input! The Water Research Foundation is conducting a study to help utilities identify the trade-offs (benefits and risks) of incorporating alternative water supplies into their water supply portfolios for greater reliability. Please take this brief, confidential survey by June 17.
