ASPE Standards for Public Review

Public Review Period Starting February 27, 2015

ARCSA/ASPE 78: Stormwater Harvesting System Design for Direct End-Use Applications

This Standard covers onsite, single-property stormwater catchment systems that utilize the principle of collecting and using precipitation or rain from non-rooftop and other impervious surfaces at, below, and above grade. The objectives of this Standard are to provide guidance on how to provide and maintain a safe alternative to utility-provided water and to optimize stormwater utilization while ensuring:

  • Reduction of risk to consumers from poor design, installation, maintenance, or illegal work.
  • Reduction of risk to the public from injury or loss of amenity due to a failure of the supply, installation, maintenance, or operation of the stormwater catchment system.
  • The stormwater catchment system will assist in maintaining and enhancing the quality of the environment while assisting compliance with the intent of relevant regulations and government officials.
  • Reduction of the use of or need for municipal potable water systems. 

Public review closes at 5:00 p.m. EDT on April 13, 2015.

WQA/ASPE 1201: Electrochemical Drinking Water Treatment Systems

This standard covers point-of-use or point-of-entry drinking water treatment systems that utilize electrochemical technology. The term ‘drinking water’ is generally used within this standard to refer to water meant for human consumption such as for drinking, cooking or to be used as an ingredient in food. Electrochemical treatment systems may also be used in certain commercial and industrial applications which have water quality needs similar to drinking water, and this standard is intended for use with all such applications.

The purpose of this standard is to establish minimum requirements for material safety, structural integrity, performance, literature and   labelling, as well as optional performance claims.

All chemical, electrical, mechanical and hydraulic performance claims shall be tested and substantiated according to the procedures in this standard.

Components are exempted from this standard because performance requirements are not applicable to components, and material safety plus structural integrity requirements for components are already covered in other standards. 

Public review closes at 5:00 p.m. EDT on April 13, 2015.
