Abstract

Disinfection is essential for ensuring the safety and quality of recycled water. Combining disinfectants has recently attracted increasing attention, because of benefits such as disinfection of a wider range of pathogens, improved reliability through redundancy, reduced disinfection byproducts (DBPs), and potential cost savings. The project evaluates the combination of UV with either free chlorine or chloramines for disinfection of recycled water.

Originally funded as WERF project Reuse-06-15.
