As Drought Worsens, Colorado Turns To Major Direct Potable Reuse Expansion
November 1, 2022
The national battle against source water scarcity has pushed water systems around the country to innovate and invest at rapid rates. California is volunteering to make record cuts to its Colorado River consumption, Texas is pursuing a trailblazing desalination project, and the Las Vegas Strip is instituting a range of unprecedented conservation measures.
The latest such change can be found in Colorado, where water managers are exploring the adoption of direct potable reuse (DPR) to ensure source water remains plentiful.
