The objective of this thesis was to identify water reuse program management strategies, obtain a sample of accepted water reuse permitting practices, and establish program development strategies from selected US jurisdictions with a history of industrial reuse in order to assist industry stakeholders in the development of a water reuse initiative in Alberta. Seven US jurisdictions were selected and studied (California, Arizona, Florida, Texas, Washington, Colorado, and Oregon). The results suggest that a single permitting agency with a public health agency assuming a role of consultant on an as-need basis was the favoured water reuse program management strategy. Accepted reuse permitting practices were separated between water quality and water quantity. Water quality permitting did not vary with each reuse application and water quantity permitting practices were dependent on a utilities ownership of effluent prior to discharge. Important program development strategies include public education, identifying reusable waters, and establishing industry partnerships.
