Assessing the State of Knowledge and Research Needs for Stormwater Harvesting
Stormwater harvesting is evolving and expanding as utilities and communities consider alternatives to increase water supplies, improve resilience of water resources, reduce pollutant loads, and find multi-benefit and innovative approaches to address regulatory and water quality challenges in the long run. Developing a better understanding of current practices, knowledge gaps, and research needs for stormwater harvesting would help expand the implementation of these practices at a national scale.
This webcast will provide an overview of the project, Assessing the State of Knowledge and Research Needs for Stormwater Harvesting (4841). Presenters will describe the range of drivers and benefits that communities are seeking through enhanced stormwater harvesting, and associated state-of-the-practice based on an understanding of stormwater harvesting implementation at local, regional, and state levels. The webcast will feature a panel discussion with utilities in different climate regions (e.g., New York City and Tucson, Arizona) and a representative from EPA’s National Water Reuse Action Plan.
