Alexandria, Va. — The WateReuse Research Foundation announces the release of The Ways of Water, an animated video that presents an overview of the many human interventions in the water cycle and looks at the benefits of some key water provision options including Direct Potable Reuse (DPR). The video is an easy-to-understand presentation of the urban water cycle and water purification.

The video was produced as part of the WateReuse DPR Initiative, a research program launched in 2012 to address regulatory, utility, and community concerns regarding DPR in California.

The Ways of Water animation is one component of a research project lead by Carollo Engineers titled "Guidelines for Engineered Storage for Direct Potable Reuse" (WRRF-12-06). The video was produced by New Water Resources as a part of the research project.
