This session will discuss how severe drought is increasingly drawing attention to an often overlooked topic of sustainability: water resilience. Attendees will learn about full resource recovery, water security and the cost-savings benefits that make onsite water reuse an essential component of building sustainability practices. The session will provide participants with an overview of local onsite reuse technology, including the implementation of a blackwater reuse system, as well as strategies to reduce first costs, incentive programs options and an in-depth look at what to expect during the permitting process.
