PhD Project Seeks Expert Opinions

Wednesday, 04 November 2015

Camilla West, PhD student with The University of Queensland and the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities, has developed an online survey to collect expert views on risks to the long-term viability of residential recycled water schemes.

This survey forms a key component of a PhD research project titled Risk management for residential recycled water schemes which is supported by The University of Queensland and the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC). The research project aims to develop a practical and holistic approach to risk assessment and management for residential recycled water schemes.

The purpose of this survey is to elicit expert opinion on risks to the long-term viability of residential recycled water schemes. The survey pertains specifically to Class A recycled water supplied through dual-reticulation for internal (toilet flushing and cold machine washing) and external (garden watering and other outdoor) household use. The survey comprises four parts with a total of 21 questions (the majority of which are check boxes or drop down options), and should take (on average) 20 minutes to complete.
Your participation in this survey is greatly appreciated. Please note that all responses are de-identified and stored securely.

Please forward this survey to any practitioner/s who you consider would be willing and able to contribute to this research.
