Review of the Reuse of Reclaimed Water, Report No. 96-61, March 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • Current regulatory mechanisms are effective in encouraging and promoting water reuse. There has been a significant increase in reuse in the last ten years and reuse has been an important component of water resources and wastewater management in Florida. Given the complexity of reuse decisions, statutory changes that would increase reuse requirements are not warranted at this time. However, some rules need to be amended to eliminate barriers that hinder the development of different types of uses of reclaimed water.
