Project 1143:  Best practice guidance for lake modelling to assist QMRA

Join the project team behind Project 1143 for a knowledge sharing event to learn about he outcomes of this project

Quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) is a procedure used by water utilities to demonstrate compliance with health-based targets for catchments with unprotected source waters. A key input to QMRA is data on pathogen concentrations in the source water, but this data alone is not sufficient to describe the quality of the source water. Water utilities are increasingly using a lake hydrodynamic model coupled with a pathogen module to simulate the transport, mixing and fate of pathogens in source water. 

There is an emerging need in the drinking water industry for information and guidance on the appropriate use of lake models to support QMRA. This project developed a best practice guidance for lake modelling to support QMRA, through collaboration between lake modellers and lake model users, including water utility stakeholders. 

This event will provide an opportunity to learn more about the project outcomes, including the final guidelines. Attendees will get a good understanding of how the guidelines can support the water industry’s critical role of delivering safe drinking water to the public.


This event is FREE and exclusively for WaterRA members. We encourage our Utility members to attend.
