Current urban water management in the Netherlands is built on large-scale, central systems for drinking water supply, stormwater drainage and wastewater treatment. Compared to the current central systems, the local collection and treatment of wastewater may have severe advantages, especially with regard to recovery of energy, water and other resources, and making these resources locally available. Therefore, decentral water systems at neighborhood level offer opportunities in the context of both climate adaptation and the transition to circular economies. In this session we discuss real life experiences and new insights with regard to (decentral) water treatment systems, focusing on recovery and reuse of water, energy and other resources.
