Of all the water on earth, 99.9% of it is unusable for human use, being locked in the oceans, ice, and atmosphere. With just a fraction of water available and with the ever increasing movement towards green technologies water recycling has come to the forefront in building design and integration. Over the past ten years these technologies have taken root in municipal, educational, residential and industrial buildings. A great deal of this emphasis has come from Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) where green building standards are requiring the use of water reduction and water recycling systems.

This presentation will walk through various aspects of rain water harvesting and reclaim water systems. The discussion will focus on quality and different state and national guidelines for treatment. In addition, the anatomy of the treatment process required for proper reuse of this water for both non-potable and potable water use will be explored. Focus will be on different treatment strategies depending on water quality and water source in addition to discussing some of the pitfalls in treatment process.
