Denver's Direct Potable Water Reuse Demonstration Project

by William C. Lauer, Denver Water, Denver, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Policy and Management: Solving the Problems


The Denver Potable Water Reuse Demonstration Project was created to provide definitive answers to the interrelated questions of product quality, public health, technical and economic feasibility, and consumer and regulatory agency acceptance. The common link to the answers to all these questions is the quality of the reuse product water as compared to national and international standards of drinking water quality, and as compared to the existing high quality of Denver's drinking water. For those quality parameters that cannot currently be analyzed, the relative risk of the potable reuse product water can be compared to the risk presented by the local drinking water.
