AWWA Utility Disinfection Survey Open Until September 5th

This post was originally published on this site

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) is conducting a survey of water utility disinfection practices that is open until September 5th.  AWWA is looking for assistance in getting the word out to water systems to get as large of a sample size as possible, so any assistance from states (and/or their technical assistance providers) would help in getting a large sample size.

The 2017 Water Utility Disinfection Survey should only take a half-hour to complete.  The survey is being conducted by AWWA’s Disinfection Committee, and is the fifth in a series of disinfection surveys since 1978.  Through these surveys, the Disinfection Committee seeks to:

  • Compile information on key disinfection-related practices and issues at drinking water utilities;
  • Identify trends in disinfection based on recent changes in legislation, costs, system effectiveness, and other factors; and
  • Assist the drinking water industry by providing a basis for development of best management practice, educational efforts, and additional research on disinfection-related practices and challenges.

Responses are strictly confidential and will be reported only in aggregate form or in a manner that does not allow individual responses to be identified.
