Iodinated Disinfection Byproduct Formation from Water Reuse Practices

A study funded by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to determined if iodinated dibutyl phthalate
(DBP) formation will be problematic during indirect water reuse. (Spring 2011 to Summer 2012)

STATUS: in progress

Funding Agency: USGS


Investigation of the use of Chlorine Based Oxidants for Removal of Natural Organic Matter using Advanced Oxidation Processes

The Removal of 1,4-dioxane, ibuprofen, PFOA, atrazine, TCEP, MTBE, and TCA from chlorine based AOPs was extensively studied. (Summer 2011 to Spring 2012)

STATUS: in progress

Funding Agency: MIOX


Parallel Evaluation of Ozone and UV Advanced Oxidation for Reducing Toxicity in Reclaimed Water

The main objective is to provide evidence of the effectiveness of UV and ozone AOPs to remove specific trace organic contaminants, and to evaluate water toxicity before and after treatment.

STATUS: in progress

Funding Agency: WSP


Development of Bio-Analytical Techniques to Assess the Potential Human Health Impacts of Recycled Water

The overall goal of this project is to advance the science and application of bioanalytical tools for water quality assessment, with a focus on recycled/reclaimed water.

Funding Agency: WateReuse Foundation
