This week's NEWS

EPA's Ground Water Rule guidance is out and, with flexibility afforded states, it is important. Fireworks for the holiday weekend? With or without perchlorate? Recycled water gets "purple" eye with another cross-connection incident. New reclaimed water projects are endorsed. Plastic pipe used inside buildings gets the sniff-and-taste test. Ever wonder what becomes of 130,000,000 pounds of those little lead weights used to balance tires?

Cross-Connection Control

  • Businesses in California city were hooked up to recycled water system for over two years  (San Diego Union Tribune, August 22); cross-connection at business complex has been fixed (San Diego Union Tribune, August 24)
    Commentary: For advocates of dual water systems, this incident represents the old "Bad News-Good News" scenario. The bad news is obvious: the cross-connection occurred despite the safeguards and precautions (purple pipe, tests, inspections, etc.) and recycled treated wastewater was put into people's drinking water. Because there have been no reports of illness, the good news may be that the quality of the recycled water afforded "enough" protection to avoid rampant waterborne disease.
