What are the implications of COVID-19 for purified recycled water?

Australian Water Association (AWA) Webinar:

The impact of the virus that causes COVID-19, known as SARS-CoV-2, cannot be overstated. Almost every aspect of our lives has been affected in some way. When thinking about potable reuse, exposure and transmission of SARS-CoV-2 can be expected to be prominent among community concerns. These concerns will likely be heightened if the use of Wastewater-Based Epidemiology, -to track the presence of the virus in sewage become a high-profile practice, which it appears set to do. Understandably, community members will want reassurance that potable reuse projects will not present elevated risks of exposure to SARS-CoV-2. This presentation will discuss the evidence that is currently available, as well as identify key knowledge gaps that should be targeted for addressing.

This Webinar is presented by Professor Stuart Khan – UNSW.

Date:      26th May 2020
Time:      4pm – 5pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time)

There will be a 40 minute presentation followed by a 20 minute Q&A session.
