FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — The National Water Research Institute (NWRI) has released two reports that evaluate different aspects of recycled water criteria for the State of California, according to a press release.

One report provides conclusions as to whether recycled water used to irrigate food crops in California is sufficiently protective of public health, while the second report evaluates the suitability of a potential analytical technique to assess water quality during the recycled water treatment process, stated the release.

The reports were each prepared by separate Independent Advisory Panels administered by NWRI, a research-oriented nonprofit focused on promoting innovation and practical solutions to water supply and resource challenges. 

NWRI specializes in facilitating these expert panels on behalf of water and wastewater utilities, as well as local, county and state government agencies, to provide credible, objective review of industry projects and policies, noted the release.

Panels consist of academics, industry professionals, government representatives and independent consultants who are experts in their fields.
