Rationale The practice of the purposeful addition of highly treated reclaimed water after passage through an environmental buffer to augment a drinking water supply is referred to as planned or intentional indirect potable reuse (IPR). IPR provides options to maintain sufficient water quantities for communities in the future and is crucial to achieving sustainable development goals of the UN 2030 agenda. However, the application of IPR technologies is still limited by a perceived higher risk and regulatory constraints.
Objectives This workshop aims to review innovations in regulation, treatment and assessment techniques and management options in the field of IPR, as well as the direction of future developments. Thereby the main focus is to initiate a discussion with stakeholders, decision-makers and scientists involved in IPR at a cross-border level, giving also the opportunity to consider related challenges and enhance opportunities for collaboration in the future.
Workshop topics Water quality assessment - Pathogens - Chemicals of emerging concern and transformation products - In vitro and in vivo bioassays - Antibiotic resistance - Modelling strategies Innovative treatment processes - Ozonation, activated carbon - Sequential biofiltration - Sequential managed aquifer recharge Regulatory frameworks and public perception - Experience in California, Australia - EU initiatives on water reuse - Innovative policy approaches - Hazard identification Potable Water reuse in practice - Koksijde, Belgium - Windhoek, Namibia - Port de la Selva, Spain - United States
Participants The workshop is targeted to scientists and engineers from the fields of water reuse, wastewater treatment and drinking water production as well as policy experts for water quality. Keynotes on the main topics will be provided by international experts.
