Demonstrating Real-Time Collection System Monitoring for Enhanced Source Control in Potable Reuse
Dr. Eva Steinle-Darling | Carollo Engineers, Inc. | United States
This research project is filling a critical gap in source control and potable reuse practice by demonstrating, at the full scale, the capability of commercially available monitoring platforms to identify, evaluate, and trigger responses to dumping events within the wastewater collection system, thus protecting the downstream water reclamation facilities, receiving waters, and future potable users.
Is the water fit for use or reuse? How determination and characterization of organics data drives decisions for critical control of potable reuse treatment processes.

A steric pore-flow model to predict N-nitrosamines rejection by reverse osmosis membranes
Dr. Haruka Takeuchi | Kyoto University | Japan
We proposed a new approach to apply the steric pore-flow model to predict the rejection of eight N-nitrosamines by RO membranes. Using our approach, solute rejection is predicted by estimating the free-volume hole-size with a single reference solute and membrane water permeability. The model could accurately predict the rejection of N-nitrosamines by RO membranes under a range of permeate flux.
Deleterious role of silica and lead contaminated drinking water in the induction of Chronic Kidney Disease
Dr. Anasuya Ganguly | BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa campus | India
This study aimed to analyse environmental risk-factors of Chronic-Kidney-Disease of Unknown etiology(CKDu),using Canacona (India) as case-study. A complete hydrogeochemical analysis of major source of environmental nephrotoxin exposure-groundwater(used for drinking) was conducted. High levels of Silica and lead in CKDu affected region’s groundwater compared to controls are assumed to induce CKDu.
