WRF launches recycled water quality study

The WateReuse Foundation announced on 4 November 2008 the release of a request for proposal (RFP) for a research project: Approaches to Maintain Consistently High Quality Recycled Water in Storage and Distribution Systems (WRF-08-04).

This research would provide understanding of water quality degradation in recycled-water storage and distribution systems and recommend storage, treatment and distribution system operations changes that would maintain high-quality recycled water at point of use.

The study will directly benefit utilities by providing information that will allow them to modify processes cost-effectively in order to minimize complaints of microbial regrowth (bacterial and algae), odor and color. The study will also examine how utilities can reduce operational challenges, reduce public health risks and build public trust.

Proposals are due on 12 December 2008.
