Abstract

Advances the design and understanding of an electrochemical reactor during drinking water treatment to achieve greater bromide and disinfection by-product removal than the current reactor design. Determines the effect of electrolytic reactor on conventional treatment, microorganism inactivation, and taste and odor. Assesses scalability issues of an electrolytic reactor for full-scale drinking water. Tailored Collaboration partner: Castaic Lake Water Agency (Santa Clarita, Calif.). Published in 2008.
