CWEA Member Peter Haase Discusses Growing Trend of Onsite Wastewater Reuse in California
By Lore James
CWEA partnered with Sustainable Silicon Valley for a panel discussion about Onsite Reuse during Annual Conference in Santa Clara. We recently talked with Peter Haase, a long-time CWEA member and one of the panel members, about his experiences with onsite reuse.
CWEA: Have you had success with onsite wastewater reuse?
Haase: Yes, we have over 25 years of experience with onsite reuse. Our systems use anaerobic & aerobic treatment including anaerobic baffled reactors, trickling filters and constructed wetlands.
We’ve done a lot of installations where the treated effluent from our treatment systems is reused onsite for ornamental landscaping, playing fields and fruit trees. Other reuses include wineries where the treated water is used on grapevines, pastures and dust control on farm roads. [Source: CWEA E-Bulletin]
