The Water Reuse Roadmap

The purpose of the Roadmap is to provide concise guidance on how to holistically evaluate reuse opportunities and benefits and implement or expand a program to reuse the most underutilized water resource—wastewater. The Roadmap begins with initial concept development; then describes stakeholder engagement, regulatory, risk assessment, and planning processes; and finishes with advice on financing, implementing, operating, and maintaining water reuse infrastructure. This is a practical water reuse planning and project implementation guide, not a design manual.

Hazardous Pollutants in Biological Treatment Systems: Fundamentals and a Guide to Experimental Research. Chapter 8: Biological Removal of Hazardous Pollutants in Drinking Water Treatment

This book first addresses the characteristics, occurrence and origin of hazardous organic and inorganic pollutants. Then, it concentrates on the fate and effects of these pollutants in biological wastewater and drinking water treatment units. It also provides details about analysis of hazardous pollutants, experimental methodologies, computational tools used to assist experiments, evaluation of experimental data and examination of microbial ecology by molecular microbiology and genetic tools.

Working for Water in the Heartland

Indirect potable reuse (IPR) and direct potable reuse (DPR) are two ways of intentionally augmenting potable water supplies with highly treated water from a water reclamation facility. IPR includes discharging from a water reclamation facility to a surface water or groundwater body for blending and subsequent treatment. DPR does not include the use of this “environmental buffer,” instead going directly from the water reclamation facility to further treatment and blending with traditional supplies.

RO Concentrate Treatment and Minimization: State of the Technology in Real World Applications

The last decade has brought with it the implementation of several full-scale municipal and industrial brine reduction and zero liquid discharge (ZLD) facilities that use combinations of traditional water treatment processes and widely commercialized proprietary systems. This paper discusses several case studies that demonstrate innovative applications of established technologies, including pelletized softening, patented High Efficiency Reverse Osmosis (HERO®), thermal processes to achieve brine reduction, and zero liquid discharge and mineral recovery.

The Direct Potable Reuse Revolution

Because of the severe drought in many parts of the country, including the Southwest region, water-supply horizons must be broader and include alternatives that, until recently, might have seemed too expensive, complicated, or unappealing. These include the beneficial reuse of water reclamation plant effluent (much of which is currently released to surface water systems or the ocean).

This article talks about the implementation of potable reuse across the country and includes case studies from Big Springs, Wichita Falls, and El Paso, Texas.

Design of Water Resource Recovery Facilities, WEF Manual of Practice No. 8

This manual, updated from the 5th edition, continues its goal to be one of the principal references of contemporary practice for the design of municipal water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs). The manual was written for design professionals familiar with wastewater treatment concepts, the design process, and the regulatory basis of water pollution control. It is not intended to be a primer for the inexperienced or the generalist.
