Project Summary SummaryPDF(PDF:626KB)

Water is an inevitable resources in daily lives, and is recycled among human and social activities, and the water environment. Origins and whole pictures of the human health risk factors including hazardous chemicals, pathogenic bacteria and viruses, antibiotic resistance, etc. relevant to water is not disclosed well. Therefore, our present water infrastructures cannot bring human risk zero in all water applications. This project aims at identification of critical control points on such human health risk factors, risk evaluation to lower the human health risk to reasonably acceptable levels, development of high-performance and low- cost water treatment system, and development of wastewater-based epidemiology for social implementation, which is introduced to water infrastructures to realize safe and secured water application.
