Course details

Developed by a water recycling and reuse specialist, this course provides water industry starters and operational staff with the knowledge to ensure the safe end-use of reclaimed water: its applications, processes, and regulations, as well as customer and environmental risks and mitigations.

Duration: 3 days

Delivery: In-person or Online (live)

Dr Abraham Negaresh

Abraham (CPEng) is a seasoned process engineer with a PhD in water reuse and recycling. His global portfolio spans water, engineering and strategic projects encompassing desalination, membrane filtration, ion exchange, and chemical precipitation, including recycling and reuse of industrial wastewater and RO Brine treatment. Notably, he served as the technical manager for the sole desalination plant in the UK, overseeing planning, optimisation, and maintenance activities.

Course overview

This training covers the fundamentals of treated water for recycling/reuse to ensure its quality and safety when supplied to end-users. Upon course completion, delegates will be able to:

  • Describe what recycled water is, where it may be used, and what legislation and reporting procedures are in place to ensure its compliance
  • Understand how recycled water supplies are monitored to ensure they are safe, and how they are samples are collected to ensure they are representative
  • Identify the risks to human and environmental health and reasons for customer complaints due to the recycled water supply, and the types of actions taken to resolve these issues

    Who can benefit?

    Delegates may include those needing to develop their understanding of recycled water quality for customer supply, as well as their professional skills in monitoring, sampling, reporting and mitigating for compromised reclaimed water quality, to support their current role or future career. For example, early-career water treatment scientists, analysts, operators and technicians.

    Participants may also be drawn from any area of business or service where aspects of reused water quality influences their decision making. For example, early or graduate consultants and regulatory officers.

    Training outline

    The course is interactive, with a mix of lecture, group discussion, and exercises to facilitate an engaging learner experience. An end-of course multiple choice assessment effectively demonstrates knowledge transfer.

    • What is recycled water? An introduction to how reclaimed water is produced, including advanced processes for distribution and its comparison to conventional wastewater treatment processes.
    • Usage: The different end users for recycled water, and how their requirements differ.
    • Quality parameters: Considerations for exposure routes and human health impacts of recycled.
    • Regulations and reporting: How and why recycled water is regulated, and the reporting requirements set by the regulator (with options to cover UK, WHO, or other regional regulations - please enquire), as well as international best practices.
    • Monitoring, sampling and analysis: Reasons behind sampling approaches for recycled water, which parameters are analysed, and the associated hazards.
    • Associated contaminants and risks: The types of quality issues that can occur with recycled water, and the associated contaminants when things go wrong.
    • Customer complaints: The kinds of customer complaints that may be received regarding a recycled water supply, and what the cause of the issue may be.
    • Control measures and mitigating actions: The types of actions that might be required to resolve quality and contamination issues, including the problems causing complaints.
