Dr. Ben Stanford to Present at 2015 Gordon Research Conference

Dr. Stanford was among the authors of an article that helps utilities develop a series of event–outcome relationships to describe specific changes to surface water quality relative to climate change.

In collaboration with the Water Research Foundation, Hazen and Sawyer developed Stage 2 D/DBPR compliance resources for small- and medium-sized utilities, including a guidance manual and a free online tool.

For NYCDEP, Hazen and Sawyer (in Joint Venture) undertook a $1.8 million study to help the City determine the best course of action for complying with Stage 2 D/DBPR. The study found that operational changes to the NYC water system would most likely satisfy the D/DBP Rule, with minimal expenditure of funds.

(RALEIGH, NC – June 23, 2015) – Dr. Ben Stanford has been invited to speak at the opening session of the 2015 Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Drinking Water Disinfection By-Products, to be held August 9-14 at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA.

At the 2015 GRC on Drinking Water Disinfection By-Products, leading international scholars will discuss the latest breakthroughs in DBP research including occurrence and toxicity, impacts from wastewater reuse and desalination, future regulations, and adverse effects on public health.

This conference will present cutting-edge research on the purification of water and the generation of disinfection by-products. With the era of pristine source waters ending, vitally important issues confront scientists, engineers, water utilities, industry groups and public health professionals in the production and delivery of high quality potable water. Increasing demands on scarce water sources, drought, water pollution and an aging water delivery infrastructure are preeminent challenges for society.

Dr. Stanford will present on Hazen and Sawyer’s work related to climate change and its impacts on DBPs.

The Gordon Research Conferences, held for more than 80 years, promote discussions and the free exchange of ideas at the research frontiers of the biological, chemical, and physical sciences. In 2015, GRC will be hold 177 conferences throughout the world on various topics. Utility participation is strongly encouraged at the Gordon DBP Conference. More information can be found on the GRC website.

Since our founding in 1951, Hazen and Sawyer has focused on two things: providing safe drinking water and controlling water pollution. Our range of services encompasses “all things water” including the planning, design, and construction management of water and wastewater-related projects – from clean water treatment, storage, and distribution to wastewater and stormwater collection, treatment, and reuse.
