This week's NEWS

Updates out of AWWA's ACE include TCR progress, climate change and disease, and PPCPs. Now it's WRF... or will that be WateRF? It's no longer AwwaRF, but the agenda is still ambitious. When EPA and DHS say they agree on need to "close the security regulatory gap," water utilities had better get ready. Maybe... the good news is that IST is not likely to be mandated. Want UV? Got UV! New manual will help.

Federal Updates

  • New philosophy drives approach to revised TCR (AWWA Mainstream, June 11)
    Commentary: While nothing is yet cast in concrete, AWWA reps reported at ACE last week that the direction the revised rule is heading toward is:"...using total coliforms as an 'indicator of system health, not public health.'" Positive total coliform samples (without accompanying E. Coli positives) would trigger a mandated Level 1 system assessment by the water system.
  • AMWA reports on recent NDWAC meeting

Malcolm Pirnie Perchlorate Services

 Malcolm Pirnie has been active in perchlorate issues since discovery of the contaminant in drinking water in 1997. Since then, we have been a consultant to numerous water systems, worked with both manufacturers of treatment technologies and potentially responsible parties (PRPs), and given expert witness testimony on perchlorate-related matters.

For more information on these services, please either read our flyer, or contact Mike McGuire at mmcguire@pirnie.com.

 

Survey on Biological Treatment

  • Participation in this less-than-30-minute online Drinking Water Treatment Survey is solicited. The Awwa Research Foundation (AwwaRF) and the Department of Defense Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) want to determine the extent to which biological processes are being used and what technology, regulatory, and customer acceptance issues remain.
