Implications for water sustainability

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

• All water has been, or will be, reused - Global sustainability depends on recycling water - Analytical instruments can detect nearly any substance in water - Population & urban density exacerbate water challenges • Treatment can remove or transform contaminants - No system can provide complete removal (zero does not exist) - Most efficacious processes are energy intensive - Are we trading water quality for air quality? • Meaningful water quality goals must be health-based - Monitoring alone will not establish safety - Detection does not = safe, just as non-detection does not = risk - Protection of public health must be based on sound science.
