The need for disinfection of drinking water is introduced along with the regulatory requirements followed by a brief examination of water borne diseases. Water quality parameters and their significance in disinfection and re-infection are discussed. A major part of the module is devoted to the method of chlorine disinfection including system design, performance, monitoring, control, de-chlorination and chloramination. The advantages and limitations of different methods of disinfection including ozone and UV are considered.
Note: The content of this module relates to aspects of both drinking water and wastewater treatment and there is inevitably some overlap with material contained within both the Municipal Wastewater Treatment and the Potable Water Treatment modules.
