Microconstituents and Endocrine Disrupting Compounds in a Pilot Water Reclamation System for Groundwater Replenishment
Abstract:After the 2002 record-breaking drought, the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) recognized the need for proactive and innovative steps to safeguard the state's water supplies. In 2004, the Legislature made $35 million in funding monies available from a 1981 Water Supply Bond Fund through the State 2005 fiscal year budget and a call for funding proposals was released to water purveyors, wastewater dischargers and agricultural users throughout the state for Water Supply Demonstration Projects. Due to increasing pressures on potable water resources in its service area, Logan Township Municipal Utilities Authority (LTMUA) hired Metcalf & Eddy (M&E) to develop a proposal to design an indirect potable reuse treatment and injection system based on an upgrade at the existing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) to replenish an aquifer system that it the primary potable water source for the region. Based on the proposal LTMUA received one of the 23 grants that were awarded; a $4.1 million grant for the first indirect potable reuse (IPR) project in the northeastern US.
