2020 AWWA Membrane Treatment Best Paper

The paper describes the application of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) methodology to identity and assess the reliability of critical control points and critical monitors to manage acute and chronic health risks in potable reuse treatment trains.

A carbon-based AWT program, the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) Sustainable Water Initiative for Tomorrow (SWIFT) Program employs HACCP methodology to ensure public safety and treatment performance.

(TEMPE, AZ - July 14, 2021) - A team of authors from Hazen and Sawyer were awarded the 2020 AWWA Membrane Treatment Best Paper Award for their paper titled "Full‐scale evaluation of critical control points and monitors at a reuse facility."

The paper describes the application of the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) methodology to identity and assess the reliability of critical control points and critical monitors to manage acute and chronic health risks in potable reuse treatment trains. Specifically, a failure analysis was performed for full-scale ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis critical control points to determine the reliability of critical monitors and their associated impacts on finished water quality.

The award will be presented at the upcoming AWWA/AMTA Membrane Technology Conference. The purpose of this award is to recognize and honor annually the author(s) of an outstanding advanced treatment of water paper published in AWWA Water Science from January through December of the previous year. The paper was a combined contribution of membrane team members Troy Walker (Tempe), Nathan Boyle (Los Angeles), Ben Stanford (Denver), Paul Biscardi and Christine Owen (Tampa).

A full copy of the award-winning paper is available on the AWWA website.
