Abstract

Due to climate change, population growth, and industrial development, numerous states in the U.S. and other countries around the world have been suffering from water shortages for the past years. While many countries, including the United States, have begun to assess the feasibility of water reclamation as an alternative, California is actively developing this new source of water. The main challenges for implementing potable reuse are the removal of micropollutants, regulations, and public acceptance. The present article systematically introduces and discusses the effectiveness of the treatment processes on pollutant removals, with a focus on the advanced oxidation treatment units. As for the regulations, there is no regulations for potable reuse at federal level in the U.S. so far; the current regulations are at state level.
