Recycled Water Research Needs in California: Monitoring and Treatment Performance for Constituents of Emerging Concern
California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) | April 4th, 2017
The California State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) held a workshop on October 27-28, 2015 in Costa Mesa focused on the state of the science, monitoring techniques, and water treatment reliability for constituents of emerging concern (CECs) in recycled water.
The goal of the workshop was to help the State Water Board identify knowledge gaps to identify and prioritize CEC monitoring and treatment activities that will ensure water supplies from recycled water, including potable reuse, are protective of public health and the environment.
The workshop included presentations from experts regarding monitoring and treatment performance for CECs, as well as breakout sessions intended to review and discuss the most important CEC research needs. At the conclusion of each day, a summary of recommendations based on the breakout discussions was developed by the participants. Below are general takeaway messages developed during the workshop. These messages reflect discussions at the workshop and are not intended to represent the views of all participants.
