Drinking Water Utilities: What are your secondary disinfection practices?

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has contracted with McGuire Environmental Consultants, Inc. to conduct a web-based survey of drinking water utilities' secondary disinfection practices. The brief survey collects basic information about:

  • Current secondary disinfection practices;
  • Expected future secondary disinfection practices; and
  • Perceptions of the use of chloramines.

The survey results will be used by AWWA to support discussion with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Responses to this survey are confidential. Individual utility information will not be disclosed. If you are affiliated with a drinking water utility, please complete the survey online at:

survey.mcguireinc.com

Thank you for your participation in this important survey!

Questions? Email survey@mcguireinc.com or call Chad Seidel of McGuire Environmental Consultants, Inc. at (303) 623-0122.
