Extend the IRP Process to Include Water Reuse and Other Non-Traditional Waters
Corona Environmental Consulting, LLC
Integrated Resource Planning (IRP) is a planning approach that water resource agencies have been using with growing frequency as a way of evaluating and balancing their water supply and water demand management options. Nontraditional Water Supply (NTWS) options include reclamation (i.e., water recycling), desalination (coastal or groundwater), and stormwater use. The project provides guidance and examples of how water planners and managers can use the Integrated Resource Planning (IRP) process as an objective and balanced way to explore the relative merits of considering nontraditional water supply (NTWS) options alongside their suite of more typical water supply and demand-side alternatives.
