Abstract: Water reuse has long been a staple of water providers in arid regions of the United States, especially for nonpotable uses. But facing demands to ensure greater resiliency and sustainability of future supplies, many providers are turning to reuse for potable applications, both indirect and direct. Amid increasingly successful efforts to address public perception questions regarding water reuse, the practice is beginning to take hold even in areas with more abundant water resources.
