This paper evaluates the combination of enhanced recovery and evaporation processes for technical and economic feasibility, commenting on the advantages and disadvantages. The Zero Discharge Desalination (ZDD) process demonstrated in Alamogordo and the proposed Advanced Purified Water Treatment Plant (APWTP) at El Paso Water Utilities (EPWU) ) will be used as case studies to demonstrate the application and value of these processes. The 10 MGD Direct Potable Reuse (DPR) plant in El Paso involves recycling 100% of the advanced treated water directly into the distribution system, a concept that has been implemented at only one other location in the world, Windhoek, Namibia.
