ReNEW Water Project Measures Water, Nutrients, Energy Recovered By U.S. Utilities

Water Environment Federation (10/5/18) - The Water Environment Federation’s project, ReNEW, analyzes resource recovery by U.S. water utilities Water Project by using data “from national and state databases, publications, and a utility survey, which represents about 25 percent of municipal wastewater flow and about 20 percent of biosolids produced in the U.S…. The first step was establishing the baseline for current resource recovery practices. Later this fall, WEF will announce goals for water utilities to increase resource recovery from baseline levels. New data will be collected on a biannual basis and expanded to Canadian water facilities.”
