Update on Water Reuse Standard

(April, 2018) TCATA continues to work with its partner the Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) to protect both manufacturers and operators related to water reuse and treatment standards in commercial laundry operations. We previously reported to you that we successfully obtained an exemption letter from the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) in which it was clarified that the NSF 350 standard had been incorrectly applied to commercial laundry operations in certain states. This has affected the installation of water treatment and reuse systems, including tunnel washers. We are working to establish a new standard specifically for our industry and are also working with the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) to delete reference to the NSF standard there as well. Should you wish more information about this issue, contact TCATA CEO David Cotter (david@tcata.org)
