From time to time, CASA partners with other organizations to lend support and help provide a collaborative solution to issues that protect public health and the environment. CASA is affiliated with:
is a partnership between BACWA, CASA, CVCWA and SCAP, and is a statewide coalition of wastewater treatment agencies focused on climate change assessment and adaptation fostering opportunities for science-based, cost-effective climate change solutions.
is a group of clean water leaders that represent five state and regional wastewater associations in California. The Partners meet quarterly in Sacramento to explore opportunities for collaboration on water quality issues of critical importance to our collective memberships. Full Factsheet
is a Central Valley salinity coalition representing stakeholder groups working with the regional board in the collaborative basin planning process.
is a coalition of municipal agencies, businesses, trade associations and others who are concerned about the proliferation of environmental regulations that are not predicated on sound, objective science.
is a technical advisory committee representing CASA, the League of California Cities and the California Water Environment Association (CWEA). The Committee meets monthly to improve environmental programs by working with state and federal regulatory agencies and interest groups regarding matters related to POTWs.
is based at the University of Arizona as an industry/university cooperative research center with a focus on water quality, emerging contaminants and technology for water treatment and biosolids management.
The purpose of this study was to research different VOCs, which are emitted during the composting process, in order to determine each ones reactivity or ability to act as a precursor to the ground level formation of ozone.
The Tri-TAC Pesticides Stakeholders Group lent their expertise to the registration and review process for potential impacts of pyrethroid insecticides within wastewater and biosolids systems.
This research reviewed methodologies for screening human health risk-based criteria for pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs), and potential endocrine disrupting (EDCs) compounds in water intended for indirect potable reuse.
In pursuit of California’s long standing commitment to developing clean renewable energy resources and reduce the adverse effects of climate change on our state and the world, the California Energy Commission (CEC) stepped forward in 2009 to assist in the research project of gathering data from water and wastewater agencies that will identify opportunities to develop reliable and cost effective renewable resources. This project was a collaborative effort between CASA, ACWA, PG&E, CEC and Southern Edison.
