Study of Innovative Treatment on Reclaimed Water
Tertiary treatment of wastewater includes a wide variety of treatment targets and applicable technologies. Although several are considered common practice (e.g., chlorination, UV disinfection), many less-established technologies are available to utilities alongside the proven treatment options. A study was conducted on current and emerging tertiary and advanced treatment technologies for reclaimed water disinfection and chemical constituent destruction in an effort to relate capital and operational costs to performance. The project investigates current and emerging tertiary and advanced treatment technologies for reclaimed water disinfection and chemical constituent destruction. The primary goal of the research was to identify and determine the relatively low-cost technology (or technologies) that is capable of the simultaneous destruction of both pathogens and chemical constituents.
