Potable water reuse requires the highest level of engineering and operations detail and excellence. Through the combination of purification steps and operating training, potable reuse systems have been shown to be protective of public health. However, important questions remain to gain more widespread public acceptance. How much treatment is necessary? How often do systems fail? What is the potential health impact of “off-spec” water?
Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) Project 14-16 addresses these questions directly. In this webcast, members of the WE&RF project team will walk through the steps to develop a risk assessment for potable reuse treatment trains. Attendees can expect to learn how to integrate large data sets into the risk analysis, develop an understanding of failure frequency and impact, and quantify the risk to public health associated with different purification trains and failure scenarios. This webcast is a must for communities considering adding recycled water to their potable supply.
