The report summarizes results of a chlorine minimization/optimization study for the control of biofouling on the surface of condenser tubes at TVA's John Sevier Plant from December 1975 to September 1977. The required chlorine feed rate was found to be a function of inlet water temperature and chlorine demand. Statistical analysis of the data did not indicate a significant impact of water quality parameters (pH, total suspended solids, ammonia, total organic carbon, nitrates plus nitrites, organic nitrogen, alkalinity, and conductivity) on the required feed rate. It was determined that inlet water temperature may be used as an indicator for raising or lowering the chlorine feed rate. Natural water and system chlorine consumption was found to vary directly with the chlorine feed rate and the inlet water temperature.
