Federal Funding for Water Reclamation and Reuse Studies

U.S. Bureau of ReclamationOn January 13th, 2015,  the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (who oversee water resource management in the western United States), announced they are providing a new funding opportunity for select communities who are seeking to explore the feasibility of water recycling, water reuse and water reclamation technologies.

The funding opportunity is part of the Department of the Interior’s WaterSMART initiative, with the purpose of helping to spur new opportunities in water stressed areas.

The funds will be available to the 17 Western States: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, as well as Hawaii. Studies should focus on examining municipal water reclamation and reuse, industrial domestic or agriculture wastewater, and naturally impaired groundwater and/or surface waters.

It is estimated that $1.3 million may be awarded in 2015, and will be available in two funding categories:

  1. For the first funding group, up to $150,000 will be available for smaller feasibility studies to be completed in 18 months.
  2. The second funding group is meant for larger feasibility assessments that can be completed in 36 months – up to $450,000 in federal funds will be made available.

It is expected that most of the awards will be made up of the first category. Feasibility studies are funded jointly by Reclamation and project sponsors. A cost-share of 50% of study costs is required.
Applications are due on March 3, 2015, 4:00 PM, Mountain Standard Time. 

TrojanUV and Water Reuse with Ultraviolet Disinfection (UV)

The advanced treatment and reuse of wastewater is becoming increasingly common as municipalities address high water demands and shrinking supplies. Wastewater reuse is an essential strategy for municipalities in water-scarce regions and UV disinfection is a key element in the treatment process.

Orange County - Indirect Potable Reuse Facility

TrojanUV systems have been installed in reuse applications around the world. The treated water is reused for irrigation, cooling water, aquifer recharge and to augment surface water supplies.
