Project description

The use of reclaimed water and recycled wastewater brings new challenges for the water industry in terms of maintaining water quality while increasing sustainability. Reuse water may contain opportunistic pathogens such as Legionella pneumophila, Mycobacterium avium complex and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The aim of this project is to investigate the presence of these pathogens in aerosols generated during the use of reuse water (cooling towers, spray irrigation and toilet flushing). This information will identify the potential human health risks associated with the different practices.

Note: You need to register interest in projects from different supervisors (not a number of projects with the one supervisor).
You must also contact each supervisor directly to discuss both the project details and your suitability to undertake the project.
