Potable reuse is a drought-resilient water supply diversification strategy that many cities are considering for supplementing their water supply.

Although many water sources can be demonstrated to contain treated wastewater contributions, discussion of potable reuse is generally confined to the intentional contribution of wastewater return flows for expansion of water availability. Potable reuse is often distinguished between direct and indirect configurations, depending on whether the return flow is released to an intervening environmental buffer....

Even after overcoming capital cost, water suppliers are sometimes at a loss when determining appropriate rate structures for reuse customers that will benefit both the customers and the supplier.

American Water Works Association (AWWA) Manual M1 Principles of Water Rates, Fees, and Charges has long been the gold standard for water...
