Emory WaterHub

Reeves Young was chosen as the builder for The WaterHub, an on-site water recycling system on the Emory University campus which utilizes eco-engineering processes to clean wastewater for future non-potable uses. It is the first system of its kind to be installed in the United States, and is capable of recycling up to 400,000 gallons-per-day – nearly 40% of Emory’s total campus water needs. The cleaned water is then used as process make-up water in Emory’s steam and chiller plants and toilet flushing in select residence halls. The system was built to reduce Emory’s draw of water from Atlanta’s municipal water supply by up to 146 million gallons of water annually. It also includes a 50,000 gallon emergency water reserve which will allow Emory’s heating and cooling systems to function for an average of seven hours in the event of any disruption in water availability.
