A two year, pilot-scale investigation was conducted at New York City's Port Richmond Water Pollution Control Plant to demonstrate the application of ultraviolet (UV) disinfection to secondary wastewater effluent and to determine the feasibility of applying UV radiation to the disinfection of a waste-water similar to combined sewer overflow (CSO). Three systems were operated: Two were submerged quartz units that differed only in the spacing of the lamps; the third used Teflon tubes to carry the liquid, with the UV lamps surrounding the tubes.
