Grants to USA, Canada, and International educational institutions, research organizations, governmental agencies, consultants, and for-profit entities to explore the benefits of water reusability. Funding is intended to support research activities including a literature review, modeling, testing, and analysis and recommendations for the impact of raw water augmentation on conventional drinking water treatment processes.

This project will address key technical issues to assist regulators in assigning pathogen removal credits to conventional treatment processes for blends of surface and advanced treated water. This research may also be helpful in better understanding existing Surface Water Treatment Rule log removal credits from conventional treatment processes.

The objectives of this project are:

  • Define the benefits and challenges of conventional drinking water treatment processes following advanced water treatment for direct potable reuse (DPR) and their influence on pathogen removal and public health protection.
  • Provide guidance on how to optimize conventional treatment after blending advanced treated water and raw water supplies.
  • Explore pathogen credit validation approaches for conventional processes (i.e., coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, and media filtration) when advanced treated water is added prior to conventional processes.
  • Better understand the potential benefits and challenges of blending advanced treated water at surface water treatment plants (SWTP) after filtration and prior to disinfection.
