Drivers for Wastewater Technology Selection – Assessment of the selection of wastewater technology by municipalities in relation to the management capability and legislative requirements
Expanded Title:This project identified the minimum requirements for effective and sustainable drinking-water service delivery within non-metropolitan water distribution networks to ensure acceptable drinking-water quality. Interviews with municipalities followed by site visits provided insight into current treatment plant and distribution network operation and maintenance procedures and the key factors that result in water quality failures in non-metropolitan networks. A web-enabled risk assessment tool was developed, as were practical guidelines aimed at different levels and/or users of the water service team, supported by two web-enabled tools available via the electronic Water Quality Management System (eWQMS). The management guides provide assistance in understanding planning, legislation, drinking water quality issues, staff training and reporting. The process controller’s guide has been developed to assist operations and maintenance personnel in the operation and maintenance of drinking-water treatment plants and identifies issues that need urgent attention. The distribution system personnel guide assists operations and maintenance personnel in understanding and rectifying typical failures experienced in drinking-water distribution systems.
