Title:Webcast: Monitoring and Responding to Nitrification in the Distribution System
Chloramine use is widespread in U.S. drinking water distribution systems as a secondary disinfectant. About 30% of surface water treatment plants currently use chloramines and the percentage of surface water treatment plants using chloramines might rise to as high as 40‒65% in the near future. While beneficial for controlling regulated disinfectant-by-product formation, water utilities using chloramines as a disinfectant are often challenged by nitrification in their distribution systems.  This Webcast will help water utility managers and operators develop nitrification management plans and provide real-world examples from two utilities that have successfully managed nitrification in their distribution systems.
