UA engineering professor Shane Snyder to speak in Korea on international water quality
Date:9/13/2012

TUCSON, Ariz. (Sept. 13, 2012) -- Shane Snyder, who earlier this year won best paper honors from the American Water Works Association (AWWA), has been invited to present in Korea this month to an expected audience of 3,500 at the 2012 International Water Association's (IWA) World Water Congress.

The University of Arizona environmental engineering professor's presentation will focus not only on his research addressing the reduction of certain emerging contaminants in drinking water -- the topic of his award-winning paper -- but also it will draw on his personal knowledge of global water quality issues. Snyder has traveled throughout the southwestern United States, India, China, and southeast Asia, including Singapore and Vietnam, studying water quality issues.

"How are these countries coping with the most fundamental of water safety questions: If you have one dollar to spend, where do you put it?" Snyder said. "In terms of public health, do you eradicate the last trace of caffeine in your drinking water, or do you build wells?"

Snyder is scheduled to meet with Korea's Minister of the Environment Sept. 19 then give his IWA presentation Sept. 20 during the closing keynote in Busan, Korea. The topic is emerging contaminants in drinking water and the different treatment levels required around the world to deliver safe water. He will co-present with Hansruedi Seigrist, head of environmental engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology.

Snyder's award-winning technical paper, "Perchlorate, Bromate and Chlorate in Hypochlorite Solutions: Guidelines for Utilities," is based on research that establishes new chlorine handling and on-site chlorine production best practices. The guidelines are expected to help minimize the levels of perchlorate and related contaminants commonly found in drinking water.

"The authors provide practical recommendations to utilities attempting to control production of
