||The purpose of the study was to further characterize the disinfecting capabilities of preformed monochloramine using hepatitis A virus and the model coliphage MS2. The EPA has identified the latter virus as a model organism in developing CT values and conducting pilot plant studies. The following experiments were performed: (1) One hour-long experiments to determine the role of pH as a factor in disinfection; (2) Three day-long experiments to document the inactivation kinetics of these organisms over longer time periods; (3) and three day-long studies in which additional viruses or monochloramine were added to test alternative disinfection kinetic models, such as a state-vector model and a distributive rate constant model both based on virus population heterogeneity.
