Abstract

Investigates the impact of variable water quality on the effectiveness of UV disinfection and DBPs. Addresses the impacts of turbidity, algae, and total organic carbon. Also identifies opportunities for DBP control, both concentration and type, through the use of UV disinfection as the primary disinfectant with various residual disinfectants.
