The purpose of this guidance manual is solely to provide technical information on the application of ultraviolet light for the disinfection of drinking water by public water systems. This guidance is not a substitute for applicable legal requirements, nor is it a regulation itself. Thus, it does not impose legally-binding requirements on any party, including EPA, states, or the regulated community. Interested parties are free to raise questions and objections to the guidance and the appropriateness of using it in a particular situation. Although this manual covers many aspects of implementing a UV disinfection system, it is not comprehensive in terms of all types of UV systems, design alternatives, and validation protocols that may provide satisfactory performance. The mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement or recommendation for use.

Contents Notes
Surface water systems required to provide treatment under the LT2 rule can utilize ultraviolet disinfection as one of the "microbial toolbox" treatment options to meet treatment requirements. This draft manual provides background information on fundamentals of UV light, microbial response to UV light, and UV reactors. It also provides guidance on the selection, design, installation, testing, startup, operation, maintenance, monitoring, recording and reporting of ultraviolet disinfection to comply with treatment requirements under the rule. Target audience: Surface water systems required to install treatment under the LT2 rule.
