Treatment requirements for Australian source waters to meet health based targets

Project Number # 1036

Treatment requirements for Australian source waters to meet health based targets

Project Leader:  Daniel Deere, Arran Canning

Before this project, there were no projects underway to address some of the practical aspects of the application of the DALY approach to setting drinking water treatment standards for Australia: cost implications and source water challenge. This was the gap to be filled by this study by providing the Australian Water industry with:

  • A scientifically credible, refereed WaterRA Research Report available that can be used to support water utility’s and regulator’s treatment decisions
  • A fact sheet on treatment requirements for Australian source waters to meet health based targets incorporated into Australian Drinking Water Guidelines
