A Global Conversation on Water Data for Reuse Innovation: Lessons from the LA River to the Global South
Date & Time
Tuesday, February 6, 2024
About the Webinar
Recycling wastewater, once seen as an option of last resort, has for many communities evolved into a necessary practice. But tapping into this renewable, locally managed, and drought resistant water supply also requires substantial community engagement and partnership. Better water data and analytics are key.
Join the Internet of Water Coalition as we bring together leaders from across the globe to discuss the role of water data in supporting water reuse.
This webinar will highlight two examples of data-driven, water recycling partnership in water scarce regions. Following these use cases, a panel discussion will explore the role of water data in meeting local needs and address the potential of water reuse to address global scarcity challenges.
