As more agencies look to reclaimed water to meet their water needs, an understanding of the microbial risk associated with nonpotable uses is important. This report establishes a comprehensive database regarding microbial risk assessment, evaluates existing microbial risk assessment models for nonpotable uses of reclaimed water, and identifies how risk assessment techniques might assist with future regulatory issues. The report also outlines criteria for a potential computer interface that could allow regulatory or municipal agencies and utilities to take advantage of the included constraint analysis of risk assessment techniques.
