The Water Systems and Services Innovation Centre (WSSIC) at the Nimbus Research Centre in Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) is undertaking a project on the role of water reuse in Ireland in the context of the circular economy. One key aspect of the project is to conduct a national survey to assess public opinion regarding the potential for reuse of treated wastewater in Ireland.
Water is a valuable resource. Delivering clean water to households, offices, and industries, and treating it afterwards, is energy and cost intensive. Due to water scarcity and to avoid waste, many countries have adopted measures to reuse treated wastewater for applications like agricultural irrigation and street cleaning, or for household uses like toilet flushing and gardening. To date, Ireland has no such water reuse projects.
Who should take part?
This is a national public survey and we would like to invite you to participate.
The survey is web-based, and takes less than 10 minutes to complete. It asks about your awareness of, and attitudes towards, Water Reuse.
We would also be grateful if you could distribute the survey link to your network, friends and family. We want to gather as many responses as possible, and we will be publicising the survey intensively over the next 2 weeks.
How to take part?
To take the survey please follow the link http://www.surveymonkey.
Survey participants will be in with a chance to win a luxury break at the 5* Cliff House Hotel.
The survey will be open until Saturday 31st March.
