The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Duke Energy, Cincinnati Regional Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council, Cincinnati Green Umbrella and Confluence are co-sponsoring a workshop to identify innovative technologies and solutions for harvesting and non-potable reuse of urban rain and stormwater. Workshop plenary sessions, presentations and panel discussions will focus on current needs and innovative solutions that could lead to marketable and more widely accepted products and services for rain and stormwater reuse. Areas for discussion include:
- Markets and incentives
- Regulatory implications
- Innovative national and regional case studies and practices—residential, commercial and industrial
- Key implementation challenges
- Economics and cost-benefit
- Risk assessment
- Research and development opportunities
- Education and workforce development
