Spotlight On Drinking Water Disinfection

The History Of Drinking Water Disinfection And Improved Monitoring Techniques
By Randy Turner, Technical Director, Chemist, Swan Analytical USA
The relationship between clean drinking water and health has been known for centuries. Disinfection has been performed for several decades, however the mechanism has been known for only 100 years.


Meeting EPA Cryptosporidium Requirements With UV
By Calgon Carbon Corporation
Due to the pristine nature of the water source, the water at the Tesla Portal facility, located in Tracy, CA, was unfiltered and was only chlorinated at the facility. But the EPA's Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2) requires secondary disinfection for control of Cryptosporidium in unfiltered water sources.


4-Log Virus Inactivation And Compliance With The Groundwater Rule
By TrojanUV
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) introduced legislation requiring mandatory 4-log virus disinfection for all groundwater extraction and treatment sites in the state. This legislation is similar to the EPA's Groundwater Rule, however the PADEP mandates 4-log inactivation of viruses regardless of whether or not a contamination event has occurred.

By Dave Stark, Arch Chemicals, Inc.
Constant Chlor Plus calcium hypochlorite briquettes and new spray technology are prompting many utilities to re-evaluate their chlorination strategies.
