US Water experts will learn from Sydney recycling

Leaders of the major water recycling operation in the United States will inspect the world’s largest residential water recycling dual reticulation scheme at Rouse Hill in Sydney next Monday (June 30) ahead of formalising links to exchange the latest advances and best practice techniques in water usage between the USA and Australia.

The US WateReuse Association and the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) will launch the Australian Division of the WateReuse Association at the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding by Mr Rich Atwater, President, US WateReuse Association and Dr Kerry Schott, Chair WSAA.

This signing ensures Australian utilities keep up with best practice techniques and the latest advances in water recycling and desalination.

The Rouse Hill Recycled Water Plant supplies recycled water to 17,000 houses via the world’s largest residential water recycling dual reticulation scheme. Houses traditionally have two pipes – one bringing in water and the other removing waste water. The “third pipe” carries recycled water suitable for non-drinking purposes in households, such as toilet flushing, watering gardens and washing cars.

The not-for-profit WateReuse Association aims to advance the beneficial and efficient use of water resources through education, sound science and technology using recycled water and desalination for the benefit of its members, the public and the environment.
