Abstract
Rapid progress is being made in the field of wastewater disinfection, but much more work is needed before a design manual can be formulated. It appears that considerable savings in chlorine usage is possible with a well designed, optimized mixing and contacting system. Dechlorination with sulfur dioxide is cost-effective, but not with activated carbon or holding lagoons. Disinfection of well oxidized, filtered secondary effluent is best achieved with a bubble diffuser contactor and is independent of contact time. Total costs of ozone disinfection appear to be twice the cost of chlorine. Ultraviolet light is finally being recognized as an extremely effective alternative disinfection process, with costs ultimately promising to be competitive with chlorine. Chlorine dioxide is somewhat disappointing compared with chlorine on bench-scale analysis, but pilot testing should reveal the true effectiveness. Very interesting preliminary results were presented on nonvolatile organic by-product formation by chlorine, ozone, and ultraviolet light. This report is of interest to consulting engineers, municipalities, and research scientists pursuing research in disinfection technology.
