Standardizing On-Site Hypochlorite Generation Disinfection Technology in Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants Increases Safety and Eases Operations

In late 2005, the City of Newberg, Oregon, decided to upgrade their water treatment plant disinfection process from gas chlorine to on-site hypochlorite generation (OSHG) in an effort to simplify operations and increase operator safety. The plant produced an average of 2.5 million gallons per day (MGD), with a peak capacity of 5 MGD.
