TIMES

Third Wednesday of the month except fourth Monday of the month in March and September.

JUNE TOPIC

Public Health Guidelines For Water Reuse and Stormwater Use: Where are we and where do we go from here?

We are pleased that Dr. Norman Neumann, Professor and Vice Dean, School of Public Health, University of Alberta will be joining us to speak to next steps in the journey to implementation of these guidelines as they relate to rainwater and stormwater.

Dr. Neumann will discuss:

1.The risk framework and basis of the new guidelines

2.The development of water safety plans (including a water quality management plan template that is under development to assist in this process)

3.The potential to establish a community of practice to bridge science, technology, business, and policy in order to accelerate the implementation of innovation

Background: The long-awaited Public Health Guidelines for Water Reuse and Stormwater Use were issued earlier this year 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. 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.
