This summary document presents an overview of the Health Effects Study, a multidisciplinary research project which evaluates the health significance of using treated wastewater for indirect potable water reuse by groundwater replenishment. The focus of the study was the Whittier Narrows Groundwater Recharge Project, located in Los Angeles County, California, where disinfected, filtered secondary effluent blended with local storm runoff and imported river water has been used for replenishment since 1962. Included are the findings, conclusions, and recommendations of the study, as well as summaries of the individual research tasks.
