June 19, 2018

Are you interested in comparing the costs and benefits of DPR with other Water Supply Options (WSO)? New Cost-Benefit Tool 'WaterSET' Available to WaterRA Members

Recently published final report from a Water Research Foundation Project in collaboration with WaterRA / WSAA / UNSW and 5 Australian Water Industry Partners presents the conceptual and theoretical framework underpinning the Water Supply Evaluation Tool (WaterSet).

The purpose of this project was to develop a quantitative framework with an accompanying electronic tool interface to allow any utility to conduct a triple bottom line (TBL) evaluation of direct potable reuse projects compared to other alternative water supply systems such as indirect potable reuse, groundwater or surface water development, desalination, and demand management, among others.

Visit the the project page for 'Comprehensive Analysis of Alternative Water Supply Projects Compared to Direct Potable Reuse' to download:

The project Final Report - presenting framework underpinning WaterSET

The User Guide - a step-by-step explanation on how to use WaterSET
