4920 - Decision Support Framework for Drinking Water Treatment Plants Experiencing Lake Recovery
The project will develop and test decision support framework (DSF) for a source-to-tap treatment strategy for drinking water treatment plants undergoing changes in source water quality. Components of the DSF will include 1) a robust source water monitoring program that can capture rapid and long-term water quality changes, 2) a strategic method for utilities to evaluate efficacy of existing treatment that identifies source water quality trigger points and thresholds for alternative treatment regimes in order to meet utility defined finished water quality treatment objectives, and 3) consideration of unintended consequences to distribution system water quality due to source water quality changes and/or changes to water treatment.
The DSF will be tested and validated by case study of the project co-sponsor and utility participant Halifax Regional Water Commission (Halifax Water) located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

|4914||Utility Response to Cyanobacterial/Cyanotoxin Event; Case Studies and Lessons Learned|Details
4914 - Utility Response to Cyanobacterial/Cyanotoxin Event; Case Studies and Lessons Learned
The objective of this project is to gather case studies illustrating the response of drinking water utilities to cyanobacterial and cyanotoxin events. The project will summarize the utility experience on monitoring, analysis, control, reporting, and communication with stake holders. The final deliverables will provide guidelines to the drinking water utilities on the benefits and potential challenges of the various response approaches.
