Rhode Island Will Consider Wastewater Reuse Opportunities

Hazen and Sawyer to Evaluate Demands, Alternative Technologies, and Feasibility

(NEW YORK, NY – April 14, 2010) – Facing an impending shortfall in water supply, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management has selected Hazen and Sawyer, in association with the Horsley Witten Group, to evaluate opportunities for wastewater reuse throughout the State of Rhode Island.

The project will include:

  • Evaluating reuse applications throughout the State
  • Creating a database of reuse sites including critical data
  • Quantitative and qualitative evaluation of reuse opportunities.
  • Communicating with and educating state permitting officials as to reuse practices, including those performed in other states.
  • Conceptual design of shortlisted reuse alternatives.

Hazen and Sawyer’s corporate water reuse group has served clients for three decades, conducting reuse feasibility studies and developing reliable evaluation criteria, a reuse cost database, and strong regulatory and technology understanding of reuse project success.

Hazen and Sawyer provides experience on a wide range of reuse projects ranging in size from 0.2 to 285 million gallons per day, including the reuse of wastewater for groundwater recharge and indirect potable reuse, industrial operations such as cooling water and boiler applications, and green space irrigation.

Since our founding in 1951, Hazen and Sawyer has focused on two things: providing safe drinking water and controlling water pollution. Our range of services encompasses the planning, design, and construction management of water and wastewater-related projects – from clean water treatment, storage, and distribution to wastewater and stormwater collection, treatment, and reuse.
