Presented by Gresham Smith Vice President Tim O’Brien, P.E., ENV SP, Dallas Water Utilities’ Lance Phillips, and LAN’s Alexander Zuniga and Greg Vaughn

Non-potable water systems play a vital role in supporting the functions of the critical processes and equipment at wastewater treatment plants; however, the system’s function, size, and ability to support the critical systems can often be taken for granted. During this session, presenters will share a case study highlighting how they evaluated the existing non-potable water system at Dallas Water Utilities’ Central Wastewater Treatment Plant, performing analysis and modeling to provide recommendations for upgrades to enhance flexibility and resiliency for the non-potable water delivery system.
