Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) analysis, an on-site rapid technique (<10 min) for monitoring viable biomass, has potential for application as an alternative verification method. This webinar will discuss the results of a preliminary study, funded by the AWWA Technical and Education Council, to determine if ATP analysis is a suitable risk assessment tool. The project team collaborated with nine utilities across North America to analyze historical data and conduct a new sampling campaign in conjunction with distribution system maintenance. Utilities were selected to cover a wide range of geographies, temperature ranges, disinfectant residual types, and system sizes. The study will provide utilities with best practices for implementing ATP as an operational tool.
