WateReuse Foundation releases requests for proposals on surrogates of removal of chemicals during water treatment
The WateReuse Foundation is announcing the release of a request for proposal addressing indicators and surrogates of chemical removal during wastewater treatment and reclamation.
ALEXANDRIA, VA, April 7, 2004 -- The WateReuse Foundation, a non-profit research and education organization, is announcing the release of a request for proposal addressing indicators and surrogates of chemical removal during wastewater treatment and reclamation.
This project is jointly sponsored by the WateReuse Foundation and the Water Environment Research Foundation.
The project is titled:
Development of Indicators and Surrogates for Chemical Contaminant Removal during Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation (WRF-03-014)
"The results of this project will be used to ensure that the appropriate level of treatment is maintained during wastewater and water reuse treatment in order to protect public health and the environment," said Wade Miller, Executive Director of the WateReuse Foundation.
Copies of the RFP, as well as proposal guidelines, can be downloaded from the WateReuse Foundation's website at www.WateReuse.org/Pages/rfpmain.htm. Proposals are by June 30, 2004.
All projects must include 25 percent of the total project costs as in-kind contributions. Proposals will be evaluated by an appointed project advisory committee. Awards will be based on responsiveness to the RFP, scientific and technical merit, and researcher qualifications.
The mission of the WateReuse Foundation is to conduct and promote applied research on reclamation and reuse of impaired waters. The Foundation's research advances the science of water reuse and supports communities across the United States and abroad in their efforts to create new sources of high quality water through the reclamation and reuse of impaired waters while protecting public health and the environment.
The Foundation sponsors research on all aspects of water reuse including emerging chemical contaminants, microbiological agents, treatment technologies, salinity management, public perception, economics, and marketing. The Foundation's research provides water professionals with the tools and knowledge to meet their commitment of increasing reliability and quality and provides information to the public regarding the chemical and microbiological safety of reclaimed water.
The Foundation's research program is supported by funding from the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the California State Water Resources Control Board, the Southwest Florida Water Management District, and Foundation Subscribers, which include water agencies and consulting engineering firms across the U.S.
