Description

WET Center Consortium Manager Account WET center Membership: Central Arizona Project WET center membership: City of Phoenix WET center membership: City of Peoria The CENTER will be operated by certain designated faculty, staff and students at the UNIVERSITY to conduct CENTER research, perfonn technology evaluation, provide the academic and industrial community with enhanced educational capability in the field of water and environmental technologies, and facilitate infonnation exchange and technology transfer. For the first five years, the CENTER will be supported jointly by MEMBERS including private sector entities, federal laboratories, the National Science Foundation (NSF), the State of Arizona and the UNIVERSITY. The research projects funded by annual payments by MEMBERS as set forth in Subsection 4 of this Agreement are identified hereinafter as "CENTER PROJECTS". 2. The CENTER shall be operated by the UNIVERSITY under the leadership of the Director, Dr. Morteza Abbaszadegan. WET Consortium Member Agreement October 20, 2009 1 ------ 3. Any United States corporation, or any Federal research and development organization, or any government-owned contractor operated laboratory is eligible to become, with the approval of the CENTER Director, a member of the CENTER consistent with applicable state and federal laws and statutes. 4.

WET Mmbr: National Water Research Institute WET Membership: SALT Institute This Membership Agreement (this Agreement) is made this ___7___day of __December___, 2011 (Effective Date) by and between the Arizona Board of Regents for and on behalf of Arizona State University (UNIVERSITY) and ________________ a 505 (c)(6) corporation, having a place of business at Alexandria ( MEMBER). WHEREAS, the parties to this Agreement have joined together to support an Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) for a Water, Environmental and Technology Center (WET) (hereinafter called CENTER) to maintain a mechanism whereby the UNIVERSITY environment can be used to perform research to study the monitoring, maintenance and improvement of water quality through consideration of the levels, fate, transport, toxicity, removal, prevention, analytical methods, sensors, forensic studies and other related topics. Development of Rapid Methods to Assess the Efficacy of Physical Water Treatment Physical water treatment processes have the ability to prevent scale formation without the addition of chemicals. The majority of physical water treatment devices result in the formation of microscopic calcium carbonate crystals. As water flows to a more scale-inducing environment, the microscopic crystals are the most energetically favorable surface for crystalline growth instead of surfaces. The successful result is no scale formation on surfaces. Methods to assess the success of physical water treatment devices require large volumes of water and one month to complete. There is a need to rapidly assess physical water treatment devices to both determine their efficacy and provide quality control in real world application. Impact of Scale Formation on Biofilm Growth in Premise Plumbing Many factors affect the growth of biofilms in water distribution systems and some of the most important factors include scale formation and corrosion. The reason these factors are important is they increase surface roughness and provide protected areas for biofilm to develop. In 2009, the Center for Disease Control announced that more water borne disease was caused by microbial growth in premise plumbing than water distribution systems. A preliminary review of the literature does not reveal any studies on the relationship between scale formation in premise plumbing and microbial growth. The majority of bacteria in drinking water systems occur in biofilms rather than in the water phase (Szewzyk et al. 2000). The primary objective of this study will be to determine the effect of scale formation on biofilm development in premise plumbing. A secondary objective will be to examine some of the physical properties of the scale with an emphasis on differences between soft and hard scale. A number of organisms are known to grow in water distribution networks, with some only recently recognized as pathogenic to humans. They include members of the genera Aeromonas, Legionella, Mycobacterium and Pseudomonas (Szewzyk et al. 2000). In premise plumbing Legionella and Mycobacterium are of particular concern since they are known to incubate in domestic hot water heaters. Many of these organisms are also referred to as new emerging pathogens since they have not previously been thought to be associated with water or could not be detected owing to a lack of proper detection methods (Szewzyk et al. 2000). Both Legionella and Mycobacterium are slow growing and they need a biofilm of other microorganisms to develop before they can become established within the biofilm. WET Membership: Coating Systems Laboratories WET Center Consortium Membership WET Mmbr:ADEQ WET Project: Legionella in Water Legionella bacteria are ubiquitous in natural and artificial water supplies where protozoan host endoparasitization and biofilm colonization are involved in their life cycle. Humans can become incidental hosts, resulting in legionellosis. Current Legionella knowledge is severely lacking in several key areas, particularly concerning the interactions between the bacteria, the biofilms they live in, and their host organisms. Regional Water Quality Research: Effects of the Wallow Fire on Water Quality Massive forest fires in Arizona in 2002 impacted organic matter levels in the Salt River reservoirs for several years. The recent Wallow Fires may have the same impact. Research is proposed that includes field sample collection, analysis of organic matter in the samples, and development of a predictive model capable of predicting organic matter in the terminal reservoir (Saguaro Lake) in water released into the SRP canal system. This project will involve participation of SRP for sample collection and other local cities for data analysis. Additionally, we will track the water quality from Saguaro Lake down through the canal system to Phoenix water treatment plants on a monthly basis.
