The City of Altamonte Springs’ pureALTA project was named the 2017 WateReuse Innovative Project of the Year at the 32nd Annual WateReuse Symposium in Phoenix, Arizona. This event is the nation’s preeminent conference on water reuse. The award itself recognizes new, innovative solutions for expanding the use of recycled water and the creation of future models that advocate the implementation of water reclamation nationwide.
“Diversifying our community’s water portfolio was one of the City’s main motivations in creating pureALTA,” said Ed Torres, Director of Public Works and Utilities. “This project could help the City meet the future water needs of our residents, while also becoming a model for other utilities around the country and the world.”
