Given the current situation of climate uncertainty and increasing competition for water resources, reusing wastewater from domestic, industrial or even agricultural settings is a genuine opportunity to contribute to the recovery and preservation of the resource.
As experts in the treatment and reuse of wastewater, Irstea researchers are committed to supporting you in implementing such measures in order to tackle the regulatory, economic, environmental and technical issues in relation to these systems.
A Local Water Management Assembly workshop will be held on Thursday, January 26, 2017 from 9:30am to 11am. It will be an opportunity for Irstea scientists to share their experiences in the field. Discussions will use a case study - a device using treated wastewater to water a plot of trees grown for firewood in Nègrepelisse, France - to address issues such as technical irrigation choices, regulations, costs, and obstacles and drivers.
The workshop will be moderated by Bruno Molle, an engineer and researcher at Irstea Montpellier specializing in "reuse," and Thomas Bel, a technical services manager for the Terrasses et Vallée de l’Aveyron Community of Municipalities in charge of sanitation in Nègrepelisse.
Come take part in the 18th annual Local Water Management Assembly on Thursday, January 26 from 9:30am to 11am at the Parc des Expositions in Rennes.
