Immunity from liability is dispensed by the U.S. Senate but only if your name is "Ethanol." Safety of recycled water use is debated with theory vs. practicality... and reality may be in there someplace. Points of view on point of use! Affordability is in the eye of the beholder and bottled water now has its own uranium... MCL!

Flavor Profile Analysis: An Analytical Method that Every Water Utility and Lab Should Have Available

Quality services that ensure safe drinking water -- McGuire Environmental Consultants, Inc. Consumer acceptance of drinking water is crucial to the success of anyone serving drinking water customers. Dr. McGuire, founder of McGuire Environmental Consultants, Inc. (MEC) led the way in adapting the Flavor Profile Analysis (FPA) method to the analysis of drinking water in 1981, and since that time it has become the "gold standard" for assessing the taste and odor characteristics of drinking water.

McGuire Environmental Consultants, Inc. is a specialty firm whose goal is to help utilities produce safe drinking water. In addition to Flavor Profile Analysis, we provide a wide range of services to the municipal and private water utility market, especially in the areas of water quality and water treatment.

For more information on these services, please contact Jim Leserman at either jleserman@mcguireinc.com or visit mcguireinc.com/fpa.

No information is available on the new treatment system but you can learn about microtunneling issues (PDF, 4 pages) they may face. But, are MTBMs a new disinfection product?
