The ongoing increase of water demand urges utilities to consider different sources of water and the re-use of water. Although the concept of recycling water is not new, and re-use is technically possible, utilities can still be hesitant of water re-use projects because of fear of public opposition. Transition to a circular economy including water re-use requires not only new management strategies and advanced treatment technologies, but needs to also consider sociological challenges, in which public acceptance is a key issue for the success of re-use projects.
In this webinar, Heather Smith (Cranfield University, England) and Peter Asteberg (Norconsult/Mörbylånga Municipality, Sweden) will present their experiences around the understanding of public acceptance of water re-use.
The webinar, organised by KWR’s Joint Research Programme of the Dutch and Flemish drinking water sector and Watershare, will take place on 22 June 2022 from 13:00-14:00 (NL local time). The webinar on public acceptance is the eighth in the ‘Sharing International Experiences on Water Supply’ webinar series.
