Bacteriophage at the Jamestown Sanitary District Wastewater Treatment Plant

Date

April 2020

Description

Bacteriophage are present in nearly every part of the environment, however their uses are frequently underrepresented in social contexts. The uses of bacteriophage have an abundance of potential applications to water treatment plants, such as the Jamestown Sanitary District Wastewater Treatment Plant in Jamestown, California. Through collaborations with Cody Billings, Chief Plant Operator, and Patti Ingalls, District Manager at Jamestown Sanitary District, a variety of potential uses of bacteriophage are explored with an emphasis on the effects of water sanitation. Additionally, the research is applied to addressing public health policy concerns and environmental justice issues in connection to unsanitized water and homeless populations in Los Angeles, California.
