WateReuse, an organization focused on alternative water supply development, developed a Global Connections Map, which “spotlights some of the ways in which water is used and reused across the globe for potable reuse.”

Featured on the map:
Colorado River Municipal Water District’s Raw Water Production Facility is the first facility in North America to blend reclaimed water directly in a raw water transmission pipeline. It diverts up to 2.5 millions gallons per day of effluent from the plant near Big Spring and treats it to near drinking-water quality. Freese and Nichols managed permitting, completed the design, and provided construction and startup services for this unique facility.

Facing continued low reservoir levels, the City of Wichita Falls turned to Freese and Nichols to assist with emergency water supply planning and a two-pronged approach to extend and expand the City’s temporary direct potable reuse (DPR) program. FNI designed the ultraviolet disinfection facilities used for the DPR application.

Freese and Nichols has worked on several reuse projects and is currently working on multiple potable reuse evaluations and designs. For more information on reuse, view this handout with common questions and answers or our Water Reuse Services brochure.
