WCWC Collaborated with researchers from the University of Waterloo.
WCWC completed a literature review to assess the effectiveness of treatment technologies, including those for small systems, in removing/inactivating cyanotoxin/cyanobacteria.
Supported a research project to investigate the performance of pre-coagulation ozone to control trihalomethane and haloacetic acid formation of high organics and low turbidity source water.
Sponsored and supported a research project to examine the removal of EDCs and PPCPs and the potential by-products during ozone and UV hydrogen peroxide application in drinking water treatment.
Funded a research project that investigates the analysis and removal of ibuprofen and naproxen from drinking water and wastewater (Western University ).
Sponsored a research project that assessed the ATP bioluminescence technology for UV and Chlorine Disinfection (Carleton University).
Funded a research project that studies Bisphenol-A in water treatment plant effluents and human urine samples from Southwestern Ontario (Western University).
Sponsored a research project that compares Alum and Ferric coagulant impacts on biofiltration performance (University of Ottawa).
Sponsored a research project which focused on optimization of dissolved air flotation for drinking water treatment through modeling (University of Toronto).
Funded a research project that investigates the impact of fouling on virus removal by ultra-filtration membranes (University of Waterloo).
Funded a research project that evaluates and models the water aggressiveness toward lead plumbing in the drinking water distribution system of the City of London, (Western University).
Supported a research project to evaluate the performance of ozone to remove seasonal taste and odour causing compounds from lake water.
Funded a project conducting a survey of small systems in Ontario (University of Guelph).
Provided in-kind contribution to pilot tests investigating the capability of a reverse osmosis package plant to improve water quality for a small system.
WCWC collaborated with the American Water Works Association Research Foundation and the International Ozone Association to support the project.
Participated together with the Ministry of the Environment's Best in Science Program to fund a research project on the development of new membranes and/or modification of existing membranes for an optimized process to remove pharmaceuticals and personal care products and endocrine disrupting compounds from drinking water sources (University of Ottawa).
Supported a research project that investigated the effect of ozone on cold water coagulation.
Supported a research project that evaluated the performance of activated silica polymer on the operation of conventional drinking water treatment processes.
Supported a research project that investigated the effects of ozone used before coagulation or following settling on the removal of organics and the level of trihalomethanes.
Supported a research project that investigated the application of advanced oxidation processes involving ozone and UV with the addition of hydrogen peroxide, as one of the methods used in the process of the removal of PPCPs and EDCs, taste and odour.
Supported collaboration with RES’EAU. RES’EAU is bringing together a unique collaboration of engineers, scientists, economists, science policy experts, industry partners and other stakeholders in order to address all obstacles to the delivery of clean and safe water in small communities.
