Stephanie and Lauren install outside-in hollow fiber membrane for NSF project on transformation of chemicals of emerging concern in water reuse systems
The Water Innovation and Reuse Lab (WIRLAB)
WIRLab trains and mentors undergraduate and graduate students from diverse groups to take on environmental challenges in water scarce environments by conducting research on sustainable water and sanitation technologies and biogeochemical processes in natural and engineered systems. Current projects investigate the transformation and persistence of emerging chemicals in anaerobic and aerobic decentralized water reuse systems, sources of anthropogenic contaminants in urban rivers, water quality response to stream restoration, and rapid fluorescence-based tracking of organic contaminants in source waters, streams, and groundwater.
Concentrations and loadings of anthropogenic contaminants during storm events in the San Diego River and its tributary, Pinongcos et al. (2019), presented at the ACS Summer Conference.
