Workshop on the “Assessment and Management of Indirect Potable Reuse”, Koblenz, Germany
6th March 2018 - 8th March 2018
The practice of the purposeful addition of highly treated reclaimed water after passage through an environmental buffer to augment a drinking water supply is referred to as planned or intentional indirect potable reuse (IPR). IPR provides options to maintain sufficient water quantities for communities in the future and is crucial to achieving sustainable development goals of the UN 2030 agenda. However, the application of IPR technologies is still limited by a perceived higher risk and regulatory constraints.
This two-day workshop aims to review innovations in regulation, treatment and assessment techniques and management options in the field of IPR, as well as the direction of future developments. Thereby the main focus is to initiate a discussion with stakeholders, decision-makers and scientists involved in IPR at a cross-border level,giving also the opportunity to consider related challenges and enhance opportunities for collaboration in the future.
The workshop is jointly organized by the German Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG), the International Centre for Water Resources and Global Change (ICWRGC), the UNESCO-IHP’s International Initiative on Water Quality (IIWQ) in conjunction with the Water-JPI project FRAME and its partner institutions, BRGM (French Geological Survey), IRSA (Institute of Aquatic Research, Italy), TUM (Technical University of Munich, Germany),NIVA (Norwegian Institute of Water Research) and ISS (National Institute of Health, Italy).
