Title:Webcast: Evaluation of Strategies to Manage Trace Organic Compounds in Water
Description:
In partnership with the Water Research Foundation (WRF) and the Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), the Water Environment Foundation (WEF) will host this joint Webcast on Evaluation of Strategies to Manage Trace Organic Compounds (TOrC) in Water. Leading researchers will discuss ongoing WRF project #4494​​, which supports agencies in assessing the costs and benefits of alternative strategies to manage trace organics in watersheds. This research builds on the outcomes of recent research projects funded by WERF on the fate of TOrC (#CEC4R08, #U2R07) in conventional and advanced treatment systems and risk assessment tools for TOrC in the aquatic environment, as well as recent projects funded by WRF and other agencies. The Webcast will provide a brief overview of the programs for TOrC in the United States, the European Union, Switzerland, and Australia. The team will also present findings from the comparison of alternative TOrC management strategies in exemplary watersheds following a triple bottom line evaluation approach.​
