Fundamentals of Disinfection
This webcast will provide an overview of one of the most attractive disinfection alternatives for wastewater utilities – UV Disinfection. Regulatory agencies look favorably on implementation of this technology, not only to address risk management issues, but also to eliminate the potential to produce disinfection byproducts.

You will gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of UV disinfection, and how these principles impact the design, operations, and maintenance of UV systems. You will also be presented a case study of the City of Jefferson, Missouri’s process of determining the most cost effective disinfection technology for their wastewater effluent.
