Price, J. AND Matt Heberling. The Effects of Source Water Quality on Drinking Water Treatment Costs: A Review and Synthesis of Empirical Literature - slides. 2017 American Water Resources Association (AWRA) Annual Conference, Portland, OR, November 05 - 09, 2017.

Impact/Purpose:

Presentation at the 2017 American Water Resources Association (AWRA) Annual Conference taking place in Portland, Oregon, on November 5-9, 2017.

Description:

Watershed protection, and associated in situ water quality improvements, has received considerable attention as a means of mitigating health risks and avoiding expenditures at drinking water treatment plants (DWTPs). In this presentation, we review the literature linking raw water quality to DWTP costs. The review reports information on the modeling approach, data structure, statistical methods, and results of relevant studies. We discuss the implications of these findings for source water protection decisions and highlight a number of key gaps in the literature.
