The Water Zone

Water is the New Grey

September 13, 2019

Our featured guest on this edition of The Water Zone is Paula Kehoe, Director of Water Resources for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.  She discussed how San Francisco's approach to water resource management has become a model for water conservation, and how they combine both centralized and decentralized components with potable and non-potable end users.  With regards to outside water reuse, San Francisco has mandated that all new commercial construction install a decentralized methodology for reclaiming and reprocessing grey and black water for all the facility's non-potable usage.
