    One method for reducing demand on limited potable water resources is water reuse. UF's Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department is host to a small-scale example of water reuse in action. In this instance, condensation from the building's large air conditioning unit (AC) is used in an elaborate set-up that brings the water to the ground floor to nurture a staff and student tended garden. Can an AC really generate that much condensate? Is the water safe to use? Why ferry it to the ground instead of the roof? This video answers those questions and more.

                Outapi im Norden Namibias. Etwa 6.700 Menschen leben in dieser lebendigen und aufstrebenden Stadt. Outapi ist Hauptstadt und Verwaltungssitz der Region Omusati mit etwa 200.000 Einwohnern. An den Stadträndern Outapis wachsen in rasender Geschwindigkeit immer neue informelle Siedlungen. Mit diesem Wachstum kann die städtische Strom- und Wasserversorgung kaum Schritt halten. Besonders die sanitäre Versorgung in den Siedlungen ist oft unzureichend. Die Stadtverwaltung von Outapi hat 2013 ein innovatives Sanitär- und Abwassersystem in Betrieb genommen. Das System wurde im Rahmen des deutsch-namibischen Forschungsprojekts CuveWaters entwickelt.

                  Water In-Depth: Supply and Demand On March 26-27, 2013, ASU's Global Institute of Sustainability and the Decision Center for a Desert City hosted a Water Forum, co-sponsored by Intel and CH2M HILL. The goals were to encourage innovation in reusing and recycling water for municipalities and industry. Here, Carly Jerla from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation discusses the results of a comprehensive three-year study on the future availability of Colorado River Basin water and the 40 million people it serves. Their conclusion: water reuse will be key to meeting the ever-growing demand. Produced by Kirk Davis. Edited by Jennifer Berky and Kirk Davis for the Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development.

                    Approximately 40 per cent of the urban population in Namibia does not have access to enhanced sanitation facilities. To improve this situation the Namibian National Sanitation Strategy proposes efficient technologies including flush toilets in combination with advanced sewage technologies, such as vacuum transport. The international research project CuveWaters takes these major recommendations into account, combining wastewater management with water reuse, fertiliser recovery, energy generation, and a community-based approach. Special attention is paid to altering hygiene behaviour to prevent waterborne diseases. Outapi, a municipality with about 4,600 inhabitants, was chosen for implementing the sanitation and water reuse infrastructure. Approximately 1,500 inhabitants benefit. The concept includes among other things, small and communal washing houses as well as almost a dozen Community Health Clubs to improve household health and hygiene. They help to foster self-organisation and communication between the users themselves and with the municipality. CuveWaters is a joint project of ISOE - Institute for Social-Ecological Research in Frankfurt am Main/Germany and the Technische Universität Darmstadt/Germany. It is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the funding priority "Sustainable Water Management NaWaM". For more information visit www.cuvewaters.net
