    Dinner Presentation – King County Recycled Water: The Right Water for the Right Use, Jacque Klug, Project Manager for King County's Wastewater Treatment Division

    Did you know that King County recycles about 675 million gallons of water each year for non-potable water uses at local businesses and King County facilities? Recycled water is high-quality water that is perfect for irrigation, industrial processes and wetland enhancement. King County is one of several communities in the United States that produces and uses this valuable resource. More and more communities around the world are turning toward recycled water as a solution to water challenges such as drought, climate change, and water quality and habitat impairments. Join us for an evening of discussion on recycled water in our community and dialogue on the how recycled water can fit into the toolbox of addressing water challenges in our state. We’ll learn about King County Recycled Water, new advances in recycled water use around the world, and where recycled water is going in Washington State.

    Jacque Klug is a project manager for King County’s Wastewater Treatment Division, supporting customer development, permitting, capital projects, and communication and strategic planning efforts relating to King County’s Recycled Water Program. Jacque has worked in the water field for many years and has experience in policy development, planning and permitting on a variety of water resource issues including water rights, instream flows, watershed planning and salmon recovery. She is a graduate of Duke University and the University of Washington.
