Municipalities are tasked every day to ensure that wastewater is treated effectively and appropriately, using the best available technology. Disinfection is the final, critical step in the treatment process.
The use of chlorine gas has been the most common method, but times have changed. Over the past few decades, more and more wastewater treatment plants have converted to and installed UV disinfection systems.
Rapid microorganism inactivation, a compact footprint, no disinfection by-products, operator and community safety – it's benefits like these that continue to prompt municipalities to choose UV.
This video explains why municipalities choose UV to disinfect wastewater, and how the technology has evolved over the years.
