Time Session Number Topic Speaker Details
  Morning Session
8:00 am Registration      
8:50 am   Welcome Dr. Zohreh Movahed, PhD, PE, CWEA Chair Brian C. Aylaian, PE, CSAWWA Chair  
9:00 am 1 Latest Developments and Trends in Water Reuse Research and Policies Melissa Meeker Executive Director WateReuse Association and Research Foundation Overview of water reuse and resource recover research programs and resulting policies from around the US.
9:45 am 2 Assessing the Impact of Anthropogenic Discharges on Endocrine Disruption in the Potomac River Watershed Dr. Erik Rosenfeldt, PhD, PE Director of Drinking Water Process Technologies Hazen and Sawyer The focus of this research is to combine geochemical markers, advanced organic material characterization methods, analytical chemistry methods and EDC toxicological profiling to help resolve impacts from WWTP discharges relative to urban runoff and agricultural inputs.
  Mid-Morning Break
11:00 am 3 Water Reuse in the Potomac Quantifying Reduction in Human and Ecological Health Impacts Associated with EDCs and Nutrients Dr. Justin Mattingly, Research Manager for WateReuse Association and Research Foundation The focus of this research is development of a prioritization framework by identifying sources of contaminants, evaluating performance of reduction measures including water reuse, and quantifying the impact of optimal deployment while quantifying economic and societal costs.
  Afternoon Session
1:00 pm 4 Water Reuse in the Chesapeake Bay Region: Issues and Challenges Dr. Joseph G. Jacangelo, Ph.D., REHS
V.P. and Director of Strategy and Research MWH
This presentation will discuss how to look at the use of water in a fundamentally different manner. It will also focus on the water recycling in the bay area and the regulatory issues for reuse and relatable research.
1:45 pm 5 Purple Pipes to Aquifer Recharge: A look at reuse successes, reuse failures, and the future of water recycling at HRSD Kevin Parker Environmental Scientist Technical Services Group HRSD HRSD proposes to add advanced treatment processes to several facilities to produce water that exceeds drinking water standards, and to pump this clean water into underground aquifers.
  Mid-Afternoon Break
3:00 pm 6 Managing the Delicate
Balance between Wastewater
Discharges and Groundwater
Aquifers; Case Studies from
New England
Marc R. Drainville, P.E.,
GHD Inc.
Groundwater disposal of wastewater effluent requires careful consideration of treatment and compatibility of water chemistry. Discharge options include drip irrigation, wick wells and open sand beds. This presentation will provide details and case studies on this topic.
