The feasibility of directly treating processed wastewater plant effluent to potable quality is being tested in Denver, CO, with a full-scale, 1-mgd (3.8-ML/d) demonstration plant. The complexity of putting the system into operation and the results to date are described, along with an outline of the plans for health effects research, economic studies, and programs to gain public acceptance of direct reuse. This project is expected to provide the information necessary to evaluate the feasibility of direct reuse, especially for cities located in water-scarce areas where development of more conventional water resources is becoming increasingly costly, both in terms of the environment and in capital investments.
