Water Environment Research Examines Wastewater Technology Introduction
New wastewater technologies can appear faster than E. coli after a thunderstorm, yet their adoption and resulting benefits can be slowed or derailed by common issues that can be solved or avoided, according to an article appearing in the June issue of Water Environment Research, the popular journal published by the Water Environment Federation. Formerly available to subscribers only, selected WER articles such as this one are available free to the public on a monthly basis through an open-access program introduced earlier this year.
"Introduction of New Process Technology into the Wastewater Treatment Sector" identifies issues related to the introduction of new technologies in wastewater treatment which can be identified and solved, and result in benefits such as improved ability to meet regulatory requirements and reduced costs.

"When the repeatable patterns in innovative wastewater treatment technology introduction are identified and addressed, risk can be managed and dramatic benefits can be realized," said Dr. Denny Parker, paper author and a recognized expert in wastewater process planning and design. "Based on properly funded small-scale and demonstration-scale research, future applications can be optimized before the technology is used more widely — saving headaches and dollars."
Published since 1928, WER features peer-reviewed research papers and research notes, as well as state-of-the-art and critical reviews on original, fundamental, and applied research in all scientific and technical areas related to water quality, pollution control, and management. Originally known as the Sewage Works Journal, WER is available in both print and online formats and receives approximately 300 new research submissions each year.
