Recharging of highly treated wastewater is a viable method to replenish groundwater resources. As more communities consider indirect potable reuse to offset water demands, there are public health concerns associated with the wastewater recharge. Recently these concerns have focused on “emerging contaminants” including pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs). PPCPs can potentially be removed by traditional treatment processes; however, high levels of treatment are required to meet regulatory standards for wastewater discharges. Perceived public health risks from PPCPs were key factors in the evaluation of indirect potable reuse for a project in Westwood, MA.
