AWWA-93117 UV Disinfection Knowledge Base
UV Disinfection Knowledge Base describes system design criteria, efficiency of dose
monitoring and dose pacing, system reliability, maintenance and lessons learned
from UV implementation.
practice of drinking water UV disinfection has evolved considerably over the
last 10 years in terms of regulations, science and technology. These
changes have spawned questions among water utility managers, treatment
operators, design engineers and drinking water regulators, such as,
-How much , , and virus disinfection credit is being achieved by UV?
-How efficient is UV dose monitoring and dose pacing?
-How reliable are UV system components?
-Who is installing UV disinfection?
-What are the design criteria?
-How much O & M labor is involved with UV systems?
-What are the lessons learned from UV implementation?
will get answers to these questions in this research report. The project researchers developed
the most complete knowledge base available on drinking water UV
disinfection. This report will allow water utilities and other users to
reduce the risks and costs of applying UV technology. The project team and
the participating utilities identified numerous recommendations for utilities
planning to implement UV disinfection. These recommendations will help you
avoid pitfalls, reduce costs, and achieve efficient and effective operation and
maintenance of your UV system.
Report includes CD-ROM.
