Demands on the Cape’s precious water resources have increased as growth and development in the region have blossomed . As a result protecting and sustaining water resources to meet the needs of present and future generations is a major priority for communities. This one-day conference will examine water reuse and groundwater recharge within the broader context of sustainable water management. Focus areas include new Massachusetts regulations on reclaimed water, treatment technologies, well injection, soil aquifer treatment, water quality, endocrine disruptors and pharmaceuticals, hydrologic balance, ecological issues, protection of surface water dependent ecosystems, parameters for effluent disposal, among others. National and local experts will address how these various elements are being addressed in other areas of the country and highlight potential applications and lessons for Cape Cod.
