Water Seminar - Biologically-Active Chemicals in Reclaimed Water

November 28, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Manoa Campus, Watanabe 112

Special Seminar: Dr. Larry Barber, U.S. Geological Survey National Research Program

Biologically-Active Chemicals in Reclaimed Water – Implications for Aquatic Ecosystems and Drinking-Water Aquifers

Abstract:

Effective management of limited freshwater resources requires an integrated understanding of the hydrological, geochemical, and biological processes associated with direct and “de facto” water reuse. The nature of organic and inorganic contaminants, which are pervasive components of reclaimed municipal wastewater, is an important consideration when evaluating potential ecological and human-health implications of reuse activities. This talk focuses on the occurrence and effects of biologically-active contaminants, such as endocrine-disrupting chemicals and antimicrobials, and by linking exposure pathways to impacts, provides insight into issues related to the chemistry of water reuse and environmental health.

Dr. Barber:

Is a research scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey’s National Research Program in Boulder, Colorado, and for the past 30 years has conducted research on the nature and implications of contaminants on the aquatic environment. His degrees in geology are from the University of Arkansas (B.Sc.) and the University of Colorado (M.Sc., Ph.D.).
