Clean Water Council Public Hearing 2003

Reclaimed Water for Beneficial Reuse
Sponsored by NJ Clean Water Council and NJ Water Supply Advisory Council

Wednesday April 16, 2003 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Holiday Inn - Monroe
390 Forsgate Drive, Jamesburg, NJ

Reclaimed wastewater, which was once considered a waste for disposal, is now a resource desired by commercial entities, municipalities, county parks, and various recreational developments. N.J.A.C. 7:14A-2.1 established a responsibility for the Department to encourage and promote Reclaimed Water for Beneficial Reuse (RWBR) and water conservation. RWBR involves taking what was once considered waste product, giving it a high degree of treatment and using the resulting high-quality reclaimed water for beneficial uses. The importance of RWBR programs first came to light during the drought of 1999 and again during the drought of 2002, when the state experienced firsthand the importance of protecting and conserving our portable water supplies.
