Designing an efficient, resilient, and safe water resource recovery facility is potentially a complex and difficult task. Designers face the formidable challenge of ensuring that the facility will meet all performance criteria, while incorporating applicable safety and health considerations.
This companion to Design of Water Resource Recovery Facilities, MOP 8, provides design safety considerations for designers of wastewater treatment systems. Information applies to existing facilities that are being renovated and to new facilities. During the design stage, old problems can be corrected and new ones can be prevented.
Occupational Health and Safety for Water Resource Recovery Design focuses on occupational hazards that result from physical conditions that a designer can control and provides guidelines for minimizing them. This manual does not cover all situations, such as public safety and safety program management. In addition, it does not address equipment or machinery design, which is the responsibility of the manufacturer.
