South Jordan's DPR Demonstration Project: A Critical First Step Towards Direct Potable Reuse in Utah

Treating wastewater effluent to meet drinking water standards for direct distribution to the public (direct potable reuse, DPR) is growing in the US. The driving forces for DPR include the increased value of water, finite water supply, sustained droughts, and population growth. The current challenges associated with DPR are not in the treatment but in the public outreach and regulatory acceptance.
The City of South Jordan is pursuing DPR as a reliable, high-quality, drought-tolerant supply to help meet potable demands of their future customers. The first step for South Jordan's DPR journey is a 20-gpm demonstration facility located at the Jordan Basin Water Reclamation Facility. This facility will provide critical process performance data for the proposed, non-RO treatment train. More importantly, it will be a showcase facility available for public tours and tasting, and will provide years of operational confidence to City officials, regulators, and the public.
We will present case studies of existing DPR facilities in other states, discuss South Jordan's proposed process train and how it is impacted by the upstream wastewater treatment process, the DPR demonstration facility, and an overview of the capital and O&M costs of a future full scale facility.
