Our guest is Dr. Kelly Reynolds, talking about the Household Point of Use Pathogen study funded by the Water Quality Research Foundation, WQRF.
In this episode, Dr. Reynolds summarizes and then answers questions about her POU Pathogen study during a recent “In the Know” WQRF webinar. The results of the study indicated that household water treatment filters can be used for large volume monitoring of drinking water quality at the point-of-use, but that retention of introduced pathogens on the tested filter is low and may still underestimate risk.
contaminant occurrence study
Our guests are Dr. Chad Seidel, and Dr. Carleigh Samson from Corona Environmental Consulting, talking about the Water Quality Research Foundation’s Contaminant Occurrence Study.
We talk with them about the types of contaminants they are studying, where the data is coming from, what they’ll do with the data and the impact of the research on the water treatment industry.
Cost Benefit study
In this episode of WQA Radio, our guest is Dr. Marc Verhougstraete with the University of Arizona and co-author of the Cost-Benefit study of point-of-use water treatment devices funded by the Water Quality Research Foundation.
He talks about how they calculated the lifetime economic loss to the city of Flint, Michigan from lead in drinking water, and how he sees the impact of the study in the months and years to come.
Our guest is Dr. George Zhou with Purdue University. Dr. Zhou talks about the Water Quality Research Foundation's 2018 Grant Study looking at the removal of emerging contaminants in point-of-use systems.
Dr. Zhou believes the study will benefit consumers as well as the water treatment industry. Plus, we’ll have a Regulatory Update and our WQA tip.
