Investigating Wastewater Reuse at Safety Rest Areas and Truck Stations

This project will evaluate the potential and effectiveness of wastewater reuse at MnDOT facilities. This project will evaluate when reuse makes sense from a regulatory, environmental, economic and management perspective at truck washing/storage facilities and safety rest areas. Sampling of various streams will be done to identify challenges related to various uses. Recommendations will be provided on the most appropriate applications for reuse and the challenges with implementation.
