Step 1. Imagine

Imagine you plan to pitch membrane bioreactor (MBR), nanofiltration (NF), or reverse osmosis (RO) technology to your local water board to reduce PPCP pollution in your community.

  • How would you pitch your ideas to convince the water board to reduce PPCP pollution?
  • What do you need to know about PPCP pollution in your community? What do you need to know about MBR/NF/RO technology to create the pitch?
  • What do you need to know about your local sewage treatment center to make the pitch?
  • Step 2. Research

    Learn more about the topics of MBR/NF/RO technology and your local sewage treatment center. Note key ideas for the topics.

    Start by researching the agencies responsible for sewage treatment in your area.

  • Is sewage treatment managed by a private company, the municipal government, or a combination of the two?
  • How does the increasingly complex relationship between private business and government influence the problem of tackling PPCP pollution?
  • Step 3. Design

    Design a pitch for the local water board addressing a specific problem related to PPCP pollution in your community. For example, this might address antibiotic resistance in microorganisms caused by PPCP pollution.

    Include a lay explanation of the problem and the science of a specific MBR/NF/RO technology to tackle the PPCP pollution.

    Consider reasons the water board might not want to accept your ideas, and then think of counter-arguments. For example, consider the extent to which an individual can be held responsible for levels of PPCP pollution. Is it practical for people simply to wash less down the drain?
