11th IWA International Conference on Water Reclamation and Reuse


Date: July 23-27, 2017


Location: Long Beach Convention Center, Long Beach, California

More Information:


NWRI, Water Environment and Research Foundation (WE&RF), and WateReuse California (WRA CA) are teaming up to host the International Water Association’s (IWA) annual conference in Long Beach, California, on July 23-27, 2017. This specialty conference is being held in the U.S. for the first time, with the goal of highlighting advances in potable and non-potable reuse both here and abroad. The conference provides a unique opportunity for water reuse professionals from around the globe to share information on the newest innovations in treatment technologies, water reuse applications, and strategies for public engagement on new water resource projects.


The combined efforts of NWRI, WE&RF, WRA CA, and IWA will allow us to tailor the program to appeal to water resource professionals from California, other regions across the U.S., and colleagues who are implementing water reuse internationally. Research efforts at WE&RF, formed from the recent merger of WateReuse Research Foundation and the Water Environment Research Foundation, will be highlighted at the conference. NWRI brings information from a range of activities supporting the implementation of potable reuse, including direct potable reuse. WateReuse California is the only trade association that focuses solely on advancing policy and funding to increase water reuse. The IWA, which has held this specialty conference in countries around the world for the past 20 years, develops research and projects on a global basis that focus on solutions for water and wastewater management, which increasingly include water reuse applications.


The purpose of the conference is to support the advancement and development of water reuse globally. This event will provide an opportunity for the water community to share knowledge on water reuse policy and regulations, new technologies, financial models, and public outreach plans. California was selected as the host location because of efforts to implement water reuse projects as the state enters its fifth year of exceptional drought. Because all of the western U.S. states and many areas of the world are predicted to experience longer and more intense dry periods, it is likely that interest in water reuse will continue to increase.
