Direct potable reuse (DPR) is a promising option for water-stressed cities, but methods to monitor DPR systems are needed to assess microbial quality throughout water distribution. Fluorescence-based flow cytometric methods (FCMs) are emerging monitoring tools for drinking water systems as they can be used to rapidly and inexpensively measure bacterial counts in water. However, there is minimal experience using FCMs for monitoring drinking water treatment systems, particularly those with disinfectant residuals. In this project, a FCM to analyze bacterial cell counts was applied to compare cell count data over disinfectant concentration ranges at six drinking water treatment systems in the US. These data can be used to better interpret the microbial water quality data of DPR systems, and inform future DPR design.
