Existing drinking water sources are under increasing strain from overuse and climate change, among other pressures. Drinking-water providers in some parts of the country are turning to new sources of water that traditionally were dismissed as infeasible because of cost or other difficulties. Among these new sources is, ironically, an old source—the direct or indirect reuse of treated wastewater, long avoided due to the “yuck factor.”

Please join us on April 10 as we explore the possibilities of water reuse. Noted author Peter Annin will discuss his new book, Purified: How Recycled Sewage Is Transforming Our Water, and Professor David Strifling, director of Marquette Law School’s Water Law and Policy Initiative, will host a conversation with Michael Duczynski, research civil engineer, United States Army Engineer Research and Development Center; Rachel Havrelock, Professor of English and Director, The Freshwater Lab, University of Illinois at Chicago; and Theera Ratarasarn, Chief, Public Water Engineering Section – Drinking Water and Groundwater Program, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources on potential reuse applications.

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. The program will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. and conclude by 11:00 a.m., with a reception to follow. Copies of the book will be available at the event for purchase from Boswell Books.
