Assessing the State of Knowledge and Research Needs for Stormwater Harvesting

Webcast
Description

This webcast provided an overview of the project, Assessing the State of Knowledge and Research Needs for Stormwater Harvesting (4841). Presenters described 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 demonstrated a draft decision tree approach for utilities planning or refining their stormwater harvesting program. In addition, the webcast featured 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.
