Estimating relative benefits of differing strategies for management of wastewater in lower Egypt using quantitative microbial risk analysis

Estimating relative benefits of differing strategies for management of wastewater in lower Egypt using quantitative microbial risk analysis
  • World Bank Water Partnership Program (WPP). February 2012
  • This report lays out an approach, using modelling techniques and a statistical tool known as Quantifiable Microbial Risk Assessment, by which the relative effectiveness of different wastewater management strategies can be assessed in terms of optimising health benefits to downstream populations. The conclusions of the study provide an indication of how such methods could increasingly be used to enable the selection of cost-effective and appropriate wastewater management strategies. The analysis presented here has the potential to increasingly inform the debate about effluent discharge standards and the management of wastewater and agricultural runoff for reuse in agriculture.
