On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our great honor to invite all colleagues to attend the 11th IWA International Conference on Water Reclamation and Reuse in Long Beach, California on July 23-27, 2017.
We are very pleased to hold this prime event of IWA on water reclamation and reuse for the first time in North America. This international conference is intended to foster a more uniform approach to water reuse providing water qualities that are fit for the specific purpose. This event will provide an opportunity to share knowledge regarding water reuse practices in different countries in order to build trust and further grow water reuse projects. The focus will be to bring together water managers, industry leaders, and cutting edge researchers to learn what’s working, what’s not and what’s next in water reuse policy and regulations, technology, operations, financing and public perception.
Around the world, population growth, climate change, drought and other factors are impacting the availability of sustainable sources of clean, safe sources of potable water. As a result, the water industry is experiencing an unprecedented growth in water reuse projects. California is one of those states where the application of water reuse has risen dramatically. The State is entering the fourth year of the worst drought in a century, which has severely strained the traditional supply of water – lakes and rivers fed by rain and melting snow.
