Storing reclaimed water in open reservoirs can impact its quality. In this study, the project team analyzed published literature and federal and state reclaimed water guidelines to develop a better understanding of the effects of storage on reclaimed water quality. The report includes 1) information on computer models that simulate water quality in reclaimed water reservoirs, 2) the water quality parameters that can change during storage and the physical, chemical, and biological processes that cause these changes, and 3) management strategies and tools to minimize water quality problems.
