The decision to use water reuse technology has been made on purely economic grounds in the past. As supplies of water pure enough to serve as a potable supply become more scarce, it will be necessary to take into account the size of the remaining potable supply as well as the cost of reuse technology when evaluating the potential for water reuse. This paper discusses the application of utility theory to this type of multiattribute problem.
