Cities, towns, and suburbs across the United States and abroad increasingly are turning to decentralized treatment approaches to solve their water and wastewater challenges. Many communities have found that decentralized approaches offer an affordable, sustainable solution that provides many additional economic, social, and environmental benefits.
The Decentralized Water Resources Collaborative (formerly known as the National Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project [NDWRCDP]), provides resources to help users navigate the research on decentralized approaches and products that have been developed. This group developed two documents, Decentralized Water Resources: Answers to the Most Frequently Asked Questions, as well as an Executive Summary, which serve as navigational tools to point users to other specific reports, products, tools, and resources developed by the DWRC.
