Certifying Your Onsite Wastewater Treatment System
More than 97% of water on earth is salty and nearly 2% is locked up in snow and ice. That leaves less than 1% of water to grow crops, cool power plants and supply drinking and household water.
Governments, NGOs, residential and commercial builders and architects are turning to onsite wastewater reuse systems as a solution to increasing water scarcity and energy costs associated with the treatment and distribution of municipal water and wastewater.
NSF/ANSI 350 and 350-1 establish material, design, construction and performance requirements for onsite residential and commercial water reuse treatment systems. They also set water quality requirements for the reduction of chemical and microbiological contaminants for non-potable water use. Treated wastewater (i.e. treated effluent) can be used for restricted indoor water use, such as toilet and urinal flushing, and outdoor unrestricted water use, such as lawn irrigation.

OEHHA Issues Proposed NSRLs for Three Disinfection By-Products
August 11, 2020
On May 22, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), which assesses health risks of environmental contaminants in products sold in California, issued three notices of proposed rulemaking (NPRs) establishing proposed no significant risk levels (NSRLs) for three water disinfection by-products : trichloroacetic acid, dibromoacetic acid and dichloroacetic acid; also known as haloacetic acids. These NPRs were open for comment until July 7. OEHHA is now reviewing the comments and will then issue a final rule.
