DENVER, CO, Sept. 12, 2007 -- Awwa Research Foundation (AwwaRF), the leading nonprofit water research foundation dedicated to advancing the science of drinking water, today announced the publication of a report on advanced oxidation process (AOP) methods to remove endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) from drinking water. These contaminants have been detected at low concentrations in streams around the world.

This report shows that ultraviolet (UV) technology, in combination with low levels of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to achieve advanced oxidation conditions, can be an effective treatment to break down several EDCs in drinking water. This research follows another groundbreaking AwwaRF report on EDCs, Removal of EDCs and Pharmaceuticals in Drinking and Reuse Treatment Processes, and further confirms how AwwaRF has been a proactive leader in sponsoring research on EDCs and pharmaceuticals/personal care products (PPCPs) in drinking water since 1999.

"This new report is an excellent example of AwwaRF developing cost-effective solutions to emerging problems in the drinking water industry," said Robert C. Renner, executive director of AwwaRF.

The report, Impact of UV and UV/H2O2 AOP on EDC Activity in Water (order #91175), is currently available only to subscribers of AwwaRF. The report will become available publicly later this year.

The Awwa Research Foundation (AwwaRF) is a member-supported, international, nonprofit organization that sponsors research to enable water utilities, public health agencies, and other professionals to provide safe and affordable drinking water to consumers. With more than 900 subscriber members in the U.S. and abroad, AwwaRF has funded and managed more than 1,000 projects valued at more than $400 million.
