Municipal Water Systems - Contaminants of Concern & Risk Assessment

Project Description:

Evaluation of risk-based decision-making approaches in risk assessments related to municipal systems. More specifically, the study has focused on decision-making approaches in the risk assessment of disinfection by-products (DBPs) in drinking water. This project was undertaken in collaboration with Dr. James McLellan in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Queen's University in September 2006.
