Abstract

This study investigates the potential for an aquifer to provide treatment of stormwater in addition to engineered treatment for the safe use of recovered water for drinking and non-drinking supplies. A brackish limestone aquifer was investigated as a treatment barrier when assessing microbial health-based targets of stormwater harvesting systems. Aquifer treatment was assessed based on pathogen inactivation and attachment to the aquifer sediments. The results showed that the health-based targets for different end uses including open space irrigation, domestic and industrial non-potable uses and drinking water could be met with additional treatment. The aquifer was estimated to have potential for ~4 log10 removal based on inactivation studies and attachment to the aquifer.
