AOWMA Issues Update on Test Project on Standard for Water Reuse

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association (AOWMA) continues to work with the Edmonton Waste Management Centre of Excellence on a project to test the efficiency of CSA Group standard CSA B128.3 Standard for Water Reuse. The paper audit is complete and the test pad is being constructed in anticipation of the site audit on September 15, 2014.

Products that meet the requirements in CSA B128.3 will be used to treat and disperse wastewater for reuse. Once the test pad is complete the AOWMA will be seeking units to be tested to the standard to use as case studies for the audit process.

Note: CSA B128.3 is a national safety standard. Edmonton, Alberta was chosen as the location for the testing facility due to its climatic conditions; hot dry summers and cold dry winters. Currently there are no testing facilities in North America providing testing to the standard. This presents a unique opportunity for sponsors to help pioneer the protocol.
