DEKALB WATER REUSE
As a part of the Brown and Caldwell Team, we are assisting DeKalb County with solving challenges related to water reuse. Our approach to assisting the County is to overcome challenges unique to inter-basin transfers between the Chattahoochee River Basin and the Ocmulgee River Basin within the Atlanta Metropolitan area.
Our tasks include the developing water reuse concepts for non-potable, indirect and direct reuse applications within the County to reduce potable water withdrawals and reduce inter-basin transfers. Other tasks included identifying the treatment of emerging contaminants and emerging pathogens.
The outcome of this study was the creation of an analysis matrix of the technologies, which the county used to determine their best opportunities for effective action.
