HOW THE PALO ALTO REGIONAL WATER QUALITY CONTROL PLANT INCORPORATED ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY INTO ITS WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANNING
Abstract:This study documents the life cycle assessment which the Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plant conducted to assess the environmental sustainability of ultraviolet versus chlorine disinfection and presents how the results of this environmental evaluation factored into the selection of the RWQCP's preferred alternative. This information is being shared in order to provide those in the water and wastewater industry with data that can be used to perform similar studies for their facilities as well as to demonstrate how sustainability can be incorporated into wastewater treatment planning.
