Innovation in potable reuse in Sweden. REGISTER HERE
From 2014 to 2019 Peter Asteberg was the project manager for the planning, design and construction of three new drinking water plants on Öland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea with extensive water shortage. In 2016 he was assigned to manage the development of a combined desalination and water reuse plant in Mörbylånga on the southeast coast of Öland. The Mörbylånga Drinking Water Plant, which was partly commissioned in 2019, is the first full-scale facility ever in Sweden for direct potable reuse of water. Therefore, the plant has received both national and international attention.
Co-Presenter is Tommy Lindström, BSc Construction Engineering and Energy. As a former island energy strategist, he has collaborated with islands across Europe and have great knowledge and experience on the island perspective. After being the regional energy coordinator for the county administrative board he is now back in international projects as project manager for the regional energy agency for southeast of Sweden. Working with resilience, sustainable tourism, renewable energy, energy efficiency and smart transports. As a volunteer he supports the Swedish Eco-municipality Association with international collaboration with South America and is also the Energy and Waste management coordinator at Engineers without borders- Sweden.
Irrigation of Agricultural crops with Recycled Water: Regulations that Protect the Public Health – REGISTER HERE
Bahman Sheikh has over 30 years of domestic and international experience in research, planning, and design of water resources projects, specializing in water conservation, reclamation, reuse, and recycling. Dr. Sheikh’s career began as a university professor. His academic career was followed by consulting, technical investigations, master planning, and design of water resources facilities. Sheikh’s water recycling experience includes service in both the public and private sectors. For the City of Los Angeles, he developed long-term water reuse goals, planned water recycling projects to the year 2090, and advanced public outreach.
This webinar focuses on the experience gained in the field in California and other regions over the past several decades regarding use of recycled water for irrigation of agricultural crops. Regulations governing use of recycled water for agriculture will be discussed comparing their stringency and effectiveness with special emphasis on microbial risks. Chemical risks from use of recycled water for irrigation will also be discussed summarizing research findings of recent years, particularly with regard to constituents of emerging concerns, also called microconstituents.
The main conclusion of the webinar is that existing regulations are adequately protective of the health and safety of farm workers and consumers of agricultural crops grown with recycled water. The extremely low concentrations of microconstituents detected in recycled water are placed in perspective with calculated numbers of years of exposure necessary to accrue one safe daily dose of each of the constituents of concern.
The main audience for this presentation includes professional engineers, utility managers, farm managers, irrigation experts, and others interested in the safety of agricultural products grown with recycled water irrigation.
Stay strong. Stay safe. Be well.

Small on-site domestic wastewater treatment systems – an Australian perspective .
Monday, June 1, 2020 7:00:00 PM EDT – 8:30:00 PM EDT
(June 2: 8.30 AM Australia)
While much of the developed world has high rates of population connectedness to centralised sewerage and wastewater treatment, the need to deliver effective on-site sanitation via small domestic wastewater treatment systems remains essential for public and environmental health protection.
This webinar will begin with an introduction to decentralised wastewater treatment, followed by a survey of the landscape of standards/regulations governing on-site wastewater systems performance certification internationally, with a focus on the relevant Australian context. It will then provide an overview of an Australian on-site wastewater treatment systems performance accreditation testing facility currently operating in South Australia, including an account of the facility’s operation, a description of some of the treatment systems being tested and their performance, and will give some stories of problems encountered and lessons learnt along the way.
Dr Michael Short, University of South Australia, is an environmental scientist with research expertise in urban water systems (water quality, wastewater treatment and water recycling), environmental microbiology and microbial ecology, sustainability and life cycle assessment. He has a keen interest in how environmental science can be applied to inform the development of better environmental management policy.
Presented by Ben Kele, Arris Water, and WasteWater Education 501(c)3.

WasteWater Education was invited to speak to the Michigan Resource Stewards in Clare, MI on September 10, 2019.
Following the collapse of the 2018 attempt to force legislation, we have continued to build partnerships and work toward a better, more open and transparent consensus process.
Here is the presentation we provided both as a PDF and slide presentation.
Greater Lakes: Reconnecting the Great Lakes Water Cycle is pleased to release A Practical Guide to Implementing Integrated Water Resources Management & the Role of Green Infrastructure.
Environmental Consulting & Technology, Inc. developed this guide for our project. Its aim is to help municipalities that are considering implementing integrated water resources management to gain an understanding the value of and what is involved in creating an IWRM plan. The Guide provides a description of the planning steps to go through, a summary of the type of information that should be considered, and a series of questions that can guide a municipality to a logical position. The guide puts a particular focus on the role of green infrastructure in IWM. The Guide can be found on the Greater Lakes project at http://glc.org/files/GreaterLakes-ECT-IWM-How-To-Guide-Final-20160510.pdf.
Craig Lindell is a highly respected engineer and innovative thinker who consistently addresses how we need to re-think how we address sanitation issues and development both here in the US and overseas.
Lindell is a founding principal and former CEO of Aquapoint Inc. Aquapoint is focused on the design, implementation and operating of advanced wastewater treatment, including nutrient removal and reuse, for residential commercial industrial and municipal clients. It has also been an industry leader in designing distributed approaches to infrastructure.
The distributed approach enables communities to design infrastructure to reduce water, energy and nutrient foot prints, align the supply of infrastructure with demand, generate capital and create jobs and often pay for itself.
