Abstract

Develops and demonstrates a novel method for optimizing the performance of full-scale ozone disinfection systems with respect to both disinfection efficiency and disinfection by-product formation control. Reports on use of fluorescent-dyed polystyrene microspheres as non-biological surrogate indicators for Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts. Published in 2004.
