Recycled Water: Putting the Risk into perspective

Safety associated with recycled water has long been a concern.  To address these concerns, A Risk Assessment Study of potential health risks of recycled water and comparisons to conventional Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Product exposures was conducted.  In the PDF’s below, we answer such questions as: What chemicals remain in recycled water after treatment? Can they harm landscapers, golfers, agricultural workers or children that come into contact with turf, crops or landscaping irrigated with recycled or reclaimed water?
