The aim of this collaboration was to create a practical design guide for the working professional that provides state-of-the-art guidance on integrating water reuse into modern day projects.
The MKA Foundation partnered with other subject matter and industry experts to create an objective and comprehensive guide for building-scale or district-scale water reuse. The guide covers topics ranging from how to determine if non-potable water reuse is right for a project, to how to talk about water reuse, to how to get it permitted, as well as how to build and operate a water reuse system. It also provides technical and construction information, step-by-step workflows, and real world examples.
“The Non-Potable Water Reuse Practice Guide is written with practicing architects and other building design professionals in mind. It provides simple and powerful explanations of why you may want to consider whether non-potable water reuse makes sense for your commercial or residential project. It also offers easily accessible information and next steps for how to incorporate systems in project design and maximize their value.” — Water Reuse Practice Guide
