dc.description.abstract Recycled water projects have been on the rise to secure reliable water supplies. Indirect and direct water reuse projects are vital in regions that are prone to drought. Currently regulations for implementing indirect and direct potable reuse in California, are at the beginning stages of development. The required monitoring for indirect and direct reuse have been continuously revised, as new technology and detection levels can expand upon the understanding if emerging contaminants and the need to protect public health. Many opportunities are available with reuse to increase dwindling water supplies; however, there are also challenges associated with implementation. The purpose of this research is to provide a recommendation for a priority list of contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) to be used for monitoring future water reuse projects. The priority list is founded upon an extensive literature review and parameters surrounding the following: molecular weight, solubility, membrane removal efficiencies, public health, occurrence in the environment, consumption, production, and regulatory framework. A recommended priority list of 38 CECs is presented in this paper for the monitoring of indirect and direct potable reuse projects. In the coming years levels are expected to further increase of CECs as of an ever increasing population density. en
