A bench-scale study of high-rate disinfection of combined sewer overflows with chlorine and chlorine dioxide was performed to aid in the design and operation of full-scale prototype treatment facilities. Four logarithm reduction in three indicator bacteria and several common viruses were obtained with 25 mg/l chlorine or 12 mg/l chlorine dioxide in two-minutes contact time. Sequential addition of disinfectants enhanced the process such that only eight mg/l of chlorine followed in 15 to 30 seconds by two mg/l chlorine dioxide were necessary to obtain similar reductions.
