 Water Reuse in Contingency Operations

Last Updated: July 27, 2018

Technical Guide 364a (TG364a) presents a risk-management strategy to treat wastewater nearer its point of production and to reuse at least a portion of the treated wastewater for beneficial purposes that would traditionally consume additional potable water.  Emerging technologies are investigated to enable water reuse to significantly reduce the volumes of both potable water required and wastewater that must be moved and stored on or removed from the battlefield.  TG364a facilitates decision making on the part of materiel and combat developers who seek to leverage water reuse in the field as a solution to reducing the burden of liquid logistics on the modern expeditionary battlefield.
