Abstract

Many utilities are considering or have implemented seasonal storage facilities (typically open reservoirs) to balance peak seasonal demands for reclaimed water (for example, irrigation) against the relatively constant supply from wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Storage changes the characteristics of reclaimed water and often algae will become a problem. The project documents the water quality and cost trade-offs associated with storage options for the reclaimed water, considering the trade-offs involved in the treatment, management, and operating procedures at wastewater treatment facilities preceding discharge of the reclaimed water to the storage systems
