HOT OFF THE PRESS: The long-awaited Public Health Guidelines for Water Reuse and Stormwater Use have been issued by Alberta Health. The guidelines take a fit-for-purpose approach, considering the quality of the source water(s) and the intended end use. The guidelines address uses where human exposure is anticipated. Potable uses and occupational exposures are excluded.
Sources addressed include municipal wastewater, greywater, stormwater, rooftop-collected rainwater, and vehicle wash wastewater.
The guidelines outline the process for developing a Water Quality Management Plan with an emphasis on system performance targets for reduction of pathogens at critical control points upstream of treatment through to end-use, and verification via operational monitoring.
