Become a Reviewer for WEF’s UV Disinfection Special Publication

March 17, 2014


The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) is developing the special publication, UV Disinfection for Wastewater, to provide guidance for consultants, operators, and water resource recovery facilities (WRRFs) interested in using ultraviolet (UV) light for disinfection.

The document will include introductory information on the advantages and disadvantages of UV disinfection compared to other commonly used technologies. Regulatory agencies that review applications for UV disinfection system use in WRRFs that are subject to bacteria discharge limits under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System will find useful information in the publication.

The project — led by Kati Bell of CDM Smith (Cambridge, Mass.) — has launched. Detailed chapter outlines now are ready for review. Publication is set for June 2015.

If you are interested in participating as a reviewer, able to work closely with WEF staff, and willing to dedicate expertise and time to ensuring the development of a high-quality manual according to the publication schedule, contact Britt Sheinbaum.
