  • Ultraviolet Light Oxidation of Free-Chlorine in Water

    Chlorine is the most frequently used chemical for water disinfection. Many industrial and commercial manufacturing facilities cannot tolerate the introduction of chlorine into the process because of contamination and unwanted chemical reactions. Chlorine affects the flavour and odour of drinks and fluids, accelerates corrosion on process vessels and piping, and can also damage delicate process ...

  • Illuminating Ultraviolet Disinfection for High-Level Reuse in Florida

    Chlorine has been the mainstay of the wastewater disinfection industry for more than 100 years due to its effectiveness, low cost and availability. However, due to various problems associated with chlorine, the Hillsborough County, Florida Water Resource Services Department decided to replace the high-level reuse water chlorine gas disinfection system at the Valrico Advanced Wastewater Treatment ...

  • Evaluating a composite cartridge for small system drinking water treatment

    A pilot-scale evaluation was conducted at the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Test & Evaluation (T&E) Facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, on a multi-layer, cartridge-based system that combines physical filtration with carbon adsorption and ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection to serve as a home-base water treatment security device against accidental or intentional contaminant events. The ...

  • Virus contamination from operation and maintenance events in small drinking water distribution systems

    We tested the association of common events in drinking water distribution systems with contamination of household tap water with human enteric viruses. Viruses were enumerated by qPCR in the tap water of 14 municipal systems that use non-disinfected groundwater. Ultraviolet disinfection was installed at all active wellheads to reduce virus contributions from groundwater to the distribution ...

  • Supply system factors associated with microbiological drinking water safety in regional New South Wales, Australia, 2001–2007

    Aim: To determine factors associated with microbiological safety of public drinking water systems in regional New South Wales (NSW), Australia. Method: We analysed 107,000 end-user drinking water samples for an association between detection of Escherichia coli and drinking water system features, sample year and season using NSW Health Drinking Water Monitoring Program data, 2001–2007. We used ...

  • Fluorescent-conjugated MS2 as surrogates for viruses during drinking water treatment

    Microfiltration/ultrafiltration (MF/UF) membranes and ultraviolet (UV) light disinfection serve as attractive alternative technologies to aid utilities in complying with both the LT2ESWTR and Stage 2 D/DBP. However, both technologies are limited in their ability to remove viruses and at the same time there is a lack of methods to accurately demonstrate virus removal in full-scale settings. In ...

  • Evaluating the efficacy of pre-oxidation for enhancing removal of HAA5 precursors by conventional drinking water treatment

    The formation potentials of five haloacetic acids (HAA5FP) in 13 surface water samples taken from eight cities from northeast to south China were evaluated using the simulated distribution system (SDS) chlorination method. These samples showed a wide range of HAA5FP levels (20 to 443▒μg▒L−1). Four pre-oxidation methods were evaluated for their performance in enhancing HAA5FP removal from six ...

  • UV Systems for Reclaimed Water Disinfection – From Equipment Validation to Operation

    The Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County (Districts) operate seven tertiary water reclamation plants (WRPs) with a combined treatment capacity over 200 million gallons per day (MGD). Although chloramination has provided reliable and effective disinfection, the Districts decided to change this disinfection practice at one of the WRPs to ultraviolet (UV) irradiation to minimize ...

  • A pulsed light system for the disinfection of flow through water in the presence of inorganic contaminants

    The use of ultraviolet (UV) light for water disinfection has become increasingly popular due to on-going issues with drinking water and public health. Pulsed UV light has proved to be an effective form of inactivating a range of pathogens including parasite species. However, there are limited data available on the use of pulsed UV light for the disinfection of flowing water in the absence or ...

  • Impact of AOC and chlorine residual on regrowth of microbes in a model distribution system receiving UV-treated potable water

    The microbial ecology of distribution systems is complex and is influenced by a number of factors. This study assessed whether or not during drinking water treatments it is important to add a chemical disinfectant after ultraviolet (UV) disinfection in order to control the regrowth of microbes in distribution systems. Results showed that low UV doses did not impact assimilable organic carbon ...

  • Water Reuse Terminology

    All water on Earth is used and reused, over and over, in an elegant water cycle. Water reuse occurs in various ways on a daily basis. It happens when a community’s treated wastewater is discharged into rivers or other water bodies. If you live in a community downstream of another, chances are you are reusing water from an upstream town. Scientifically proven advances in water technology ...
