With water becoming a precious commodity, attitudes toward reuse are shifting
As populations surge and water stresses increase, societies are coming to realize the true value of water. This includes the necessity to conserve water resources and protect water quality.

Her firm is involved with San Diego’s multiyear potable reuse program to use proven water purification technology to eventually produce one-third of San Diego’s drinking water supply.
