Guidance Document on the Microbiological Quality and Biostability of Reclaimed Water Following Storage and Distribution

Principal Investigator
Patrick K. Jjemba, PhD

Freshwater is becoming increasingly scarce as a result of increasing populations, changing precipitation patterns, and/or degradation of existing sources of water, making water reuse a necessity. While much attention to reclaimed water has focused on the quality of the water at the treatment plant, that quality can degrade by the time it gets to the point of use. Therefore, a comprehensive understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological factors that affect the microbial quality of reclaimed water within distribution systems is necessary. This report documents changes in water quality in reclaimed distribution systems and provides approaches to minimize deterioration and improve product quality. To minimize deterioration in water quality, seven remedial practices are identified as practical guidance to help administrators of reclaimed water systems manage their distribution systems.
