Membrane technology for water reuse is increasing as a result of reductions in cost and greater recognition of their advantages over more traditional advanced treatment technologies. Phase 1 of this project is intended to advance the implementation of membrane technology in subsequent use of wastewater effluent and to provide direction for research on issues critical to such advancement. This electronic-only report includes: an assessment of membrane technology for wastewater reclamation through analysis of peer-reviewed and gray literature and through a survey of existing projects at pilot- or full-scale, identification of critical gaps in knowledge in the practical application of membrane technology for water reuse; and development of relationships between selection (and pretreatment) and specific water reuse goals, upon which a pilot plant program was developed in Phase 2 of this project (see 01CTS6a).
