Yang, J. An Update on Modifications to Water Treatment Plant Model. WQTC 2017, Portland, Oregon, November 12 - 16, 2017.

Impact/Purpose:

Present to the technical community the research and progress on water treatment plant model in support of the EPA's SDWA Stage II regulations

Description:

Water treatment plant (WTP) model is an EPA tool for informing regulatory options. WTP has a few versions: 1). WTP2.2 can help in regulatory analysis. An updated version (WTP3.0) will allow plant-specific analysis (WTP-ccam) and thus help meet plant-specific treatment objectives. 2) WTP3.0 will have three distinct features: a) mechanistic model of Cl and TOC/DBP for conventional and GAC treatment; b) Monte Carlo engine for source water variability; and c) cost probability to meet given treatment objectives. And finally, WTP3.0 will have a GUI to run either updated WTP2.2 or WTP-ccam. WTP3.0 development is ongoing with a focus on WTP-ccam enhancement using real plant data from case studies in the U.S. and China.
