EPA Solicits Public Comments On Water Reuse

File your comments on EPA’s draft plan on recycling and reuse of water by December 16.

The EPA has published a draft plan to encourage the recycling and reuse of water, as they view this as a national priority. According to Circle of Blue, “The plan provides examples of reuse and identifies potential sources, such as municipal treatment plants, oil and gas operations, and urban stormwater.

It recommends 46 actions, including data collection to understand downstream consequences of increased reuse, assessing the use of oilfield-produced water, and a national `branding campaign’ to rally support for water reuse.”

The main page for the draft plan is located here. To file a public comment alongside the 15 public comments received to date, please go to this page.

You have until December 16, 2019 to act.
