Meridian Institute

Workshop on Overcoming Institutional Barriers to Potable Water Reuse

Related: Environment and Natural Resources

​Meridian Institute is providing stakeholder outreach, facilitation, and report writing support for a workshop focused on identifying strategies for overcoming institutional barriers to potable water reuse. The workshop, to be held in October 2017, will examine financial, organizational, governance, legal, regulatory, political, and sociological barriers. A diverse group of utility managers, technical experts, advocates, and regulators will come together to identify creative solutions, with the goal of accelerating investment in potable reuse projects. A report developed from the discussions will inform both the ongoing dialogue about potable water reuse, as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s and other regulatory agencies’ understanding of the complexities of existing institutional barriers. Meridian is working with U.S. EPA Region 9, ReNUWIt, The Johnson Foundation at Wingspread, and Paradigm Environmental on this project.
