Resources for Distributed Water Infrastructure

It’s an exhilarating time in the world of water infrastructure and technology innovations, making it hard to keep up.  Broadview Collaborative, Inc., has a particularly keen interest in the role of what is interchangeably referred to as distributed, decentralized, or scalable water infrastructure.  Though there are a number of relevant resources and reports that have emerged in recent years, so we thought it would be useful (for ourselves, as well as for others) to create a one-stop set of links to these resources. We will try to keep this a “living” page, adding new resources as they become available. If you know of something that should be added (or edited), please send an email to Lynn Broaddus at LBroaddus @ (actual email address doesn’t have spaces in it). 

Aside: This is NOT a listing of all of the specific technologies or installation examples. That would probably be useful, but would be a much bigger undertaking! 

Distributed Water Infrastructure Resources: 

Reinvented Toilets:  At the far end of the distributed water infrastructure continuum are reinvented / re-imagined toilets that use little to no water and have the potential to revolutionize the way we build, finance, and manage water and excrement.  They’re a unique enough aspect of distributed infrastructure (note that we didn’t write “water infrastructure” since they tend to not use water!) that we’re giving them their own page. Check it out.
