Emerging Contaminants Research Workshop
Free Seminar - 3 PDHs Available
Water and wastewater utilities throughout the United States are trying to cope with public concern over the presence of trace organic contaminants (TOrCs) in water and the environment, including pharmaceuticals and personal care products and endocrine disrupting compounds.
This workshop will provide an overview and “state of knowledge” synopsis of recent research performed by the workshop facilitators. The discussion will include a paper published in the November 2010 issue of the Journal of American Water Works Association titled Estrogenic Activity of US Drinking Waters: A Relative Exposure Comparison.
In addition to a discussion of TOrC removal during conventional treatment in water and wastewater, advanced treatment technologies will be discussed, including pilot-scale titanium dioxide/UV photocatalysis, non-thermal plasma, ozone, ozone peroxide, UV, and UV/peroxide. The workshop will also include a discussion of current water and wastewater regulatory issues and the potential for future regulatory action. The final workshop segment will focus on providing tools for utility planning and communication and applied research focus areas.
Led by Dr. Benjamin Stanford, Director of Applied Research, Mary Sadler, P.E., and Dr. Erik Rosenfeldt, P.E., with keynote presentations by prominent local water/wastewater treatment experts.
