Water operators are obligated to provide treatment for a wide-range of regulated and emerging contaminants to keep the public’s drinking water safe for consumption. That responsibility has led to increased attention in advanced oxidation technologies as a solution.
This publication concentrates on the fundamentals of the design and operation for advanced oxidation technologies and the possible applications, including micropollutant treatment, treatment of taste and odor compounds and water reuse treatment.
Of particular interest to water operators and utility managers are the case studies included in the handbook, such as the one that examines the use of an engineering firm when applying advanced oxidation treatment compared with the option of doing the treatment without assistance.
Advanced Oxidation Handbook is available in AWWA’s online store. It is also available as a PDF download and as a PDF download and print set. The publication's table of contents and introduction are available for download too.
