On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our great honor to invite all colleagues to attend the 11th IWA International Conference on Water Reclamation and Reuse in Long Beach, California on July 23-17, 2017. We are very pleased to hold this prime event of IWA on water reclamation and reuse for the first time in North America. This international conference is intended to foster a more uniform approach to water reuse providing water qualities that are fit for the specific purpose. This event will provide an opportunity to share knowledge regarding water reuse practices in different countries in order to build trust and further grow water reuse projects. The focus will be to bring together water managers, industry leaders, and cutting edge researchers to learn what’s working, what’s not and what’s next in water reuse policy and regulations, technology, operations, financing and public perception.

IWA is presenting this conference in partnership with the Water Environment & Research Foundation, WateReuse California, and the National Water Research Institute.

This event will provide an opportunity to share knowledge regarding water reuse practices in different countries in order to build trust and further grow water reuse projects. The focus will be to bring together water managers, industry leaders, and cutting edge researchers to learn what’s working, what’s not and what’s next in water reuse policy and regulations, technology, operations, financing and public perception.

Around the world, population growth, climate change, drought and other factors are impacting the availability of sustainable sources of clean, safe sources of potable water. As a result, the water industry is experiencing an unprecedented growth in water reuse projects. California is one of those states where the application of water reuse has risen dramatically. The State is entering the fourth year of the worst drought in a century, which has severely strained the traditional supply of water – lakes and rivers fed by rain and melting snow.

The prolonged drought in California has resulted in groundbreaking emergency measures being enacted throughout the state and intense focus on increasing the use of recycled water over the next 10 years. The state is leading the nation in developing statewide regulations to ensure a safe supply of water from water treatment facilities that recycle water directly for human consumption.

California is home to a number of world-class water reuse facilities and projects, as well as some of the most sophisticated fit-for-purpose reuse operations in the world. The situation in California provides a relevant and useful case study for the water supply challenges that communities around the world have and will be facing in the future, and we look forward to welcoming the IWA International Conference on Water Reclamation and Reuse to California.
