Legal Matters

  • U.S. Appellate court rules against City of Portland, OR, on Cryptosporidium treatment/open reservoir issue:

    Commentary: The court's ruling was stated in "no uncertain terms" and leaves little room for an appeal to the Supreme Court. It addresses significant issues about the role of cost-benefit analyses, especially with respect to control of Cryptosporidium. The ruling provides a number of interesting tidbits and education on the way the system works. One example: Just because an EPA regulation proposal doesn't include a certain element doesn't mean that it can't and won't show up in the final version of the rule. Commenters must be cognizant of how the final rule may evolve... and comment on the contingency?

Water Treatment

Cross-Connection

  • Water quality and health experts provide input on the risk related to cross-connection of tertiary-treated reclaimed water system in California business center (San Diego Union Tribune, November 8)
    Commentary: Any water quality professional reading this story would immediately be suspicious that the reporter had no idea what she was talking about and that the headline writer went off the deep end. Unfortunately, the public cannot see through the nonsense. Is it any wonder that the news media is rated as "not trustworthy" in public opinion surveys? At least one person who published a comment at the bottom of the story web page seemed to know what he was talking about – who is this guy:
    "This article got the story completely wrong. I will be requesting that the Tribune publish a correction and a letter to the editor stating what I actually did say in my letter. Recycled water is not safe to drink and I would never say that it is safe to drink.

–Michael J. McGuire"
