   OneWater Nevada’s Advanced Purified Water Demonstration Project ( APWD Project ) conducted at the Reno - Stead Water Reclamation Facility ( RSWRF ) has been named the 2021 project of the year by the American Society of Civil Engineers .
   The project was a joint effort between the City of Reno , Truckee Meadows Water Authority ( TMWA ) , and the University of Nevada , Reno , to treat the water to Category A+ , inject the water underground , and then recover the water for beneficial use . This process is known as aquifer storage and recovery . The small - scale ( 15 gallons per minute ) demonstration project proved that the advanced water treatment technologies are valid and cost - effective .  
   Category A+ reclaimed water is advanced purified water that meets or exceeds all Federal and State drinking water standards . Treating reclaimed water to Category A+ status uses state - of - the - art water treatment technology and then harnesses natural groundwater processes to safely produce a drinking water quality product .
   “We’re extremely proud to receive this prestigious honor from the American Society of Civil Engineers for our efforts to provide a local , reliable and drought - proof water source for our community , ” said City of Reno Public Works Director John Flansberg . “This project demonstrates the importance of regional collaboration and how much we can accomplish when we work together toward a more sustainable future . ” 
   “Advanced purified water provides our region with an opportunity to create a new and sustainable water supply option , ” said Lydia Teel , Ph . D . , TMWA Emerging Resources Program Administrator . “Instead of using a resource only once , we can recycle and reuse water in a safe and reliable manner to create a drought - proof water supply for our future . ”
   “The University of Nevada , Reno’s Nevada Water Innovation Institute is proud to collaborate with our government agency partners on this project , ” said Dr . Krishna Pagilla , Chair of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Nevada , Reno . “Water is a key resource in our region , and we are honored to be a part of the team that is finding solutions to the area’s water management issues . ”
   Through the success of the project , the City of Reno and TMWA are working jointly to build a full - scale Advanced Purified Water Facility in the North Valleys . It would involve upgraded treatment facilities at the RSWRF , an advanced purified water facility to be built offsite or at the RSWRF site , conveyance pipelines , pump station improvements , and injection and extraction wells . Advanced purified water stored in the aquifer would initially be taken out and used for irrigation of the American Flat site .
   On Wednesday , April 27 , during the Reno City Council Meeting , City staff will present a
   project status update and outline the next steps
    for future implementation .
