Q: What are some of the ways that homeowners and builders can have a real impact?
A: ...There are some cutting edge technologies, such as ... the re-use of grey water with actual onsite treatment facilities...
Q: Can improvements in residential use overcome the water deficit?
A: It's been acknowledged by experts there is not a silver bullet; it will take a combination of things in order to provide a water supply in the future in this state. We will need all of the tools to achieve that end.
We need more in the way of surface water storage; we need more ground water storage and better conveyance systems. The hope is we'll do a better job getting our infrastructure where it needs to be so when we do have wet years we can retain more water.
It's very fortunate that we have the technology that's emerging and will continue to develop. And I think they've done a good job of creating an environment relating to water that doesn't reduce the pleasure or utility you receive out of it. They've come up with ways to still have the same quality life and use half as much water as you've been using. That's the kind of thing we want to see more of.
The "Design for Autonomous Net-Zero Water Buildings" Project Funded By NSF:
The students at the University of Miami will know firsthand the importance of rethinking the way we handle wastewater and water with a Net-Zero water treatment system on site. The project showed the viability and feasibility to take buildings off the water grid to provide water recycling and how it can be achieved without raising the cost of high quality water.
