COLLABORATING WITH AN EYE TOWARD IMPROVING DRINKING WATER AFFORDABILITY

Linda K. Weavers, Ph.D., P.E., BCEE

Wednesday, May 12, 2021  |   12:00 - 1:00 pm EST

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) recently released its 2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure.  ASCE assessed infrastructure in sixteen different categories nationally and by state.  Nationally, ASCE graded America’s overall and drinking water infrastructure a C-.  In Ohio, drinking water infrastructure was graded a D+ citing concerns over affordability and funding, contaminants of emerging concern, and aging distribution systems. This presentation will describe projects aimed at contaminants of emerging concern and improving affordability. First, the use of an emerging technology, ultrasound, to treat harmful algal blooms (HABs) and PFAS contaminated water will be explored. Next, to reduce the cost of installation of innovative but more appropriate technology than traditional technologies, a process to develop design criteria for emerging technologies with panels of design engineers, water utility professionals, and water regulators will be described.
