This topic explores the potential for water reuse activities through recapture and recycling of wastewaters. In addition, standards are needed to guide the development of efficiencies in equipment and devices, recapture mechanisms, and irrigation and drainage for agricultural, commercial, and private systems. Lastly, ways to supplement existing water supplies through desalination of sea water and electrodialysis methods to separate mixed waters through ion permeable membranes are technologies that will continue to grow in usage.
