Water Treatment – Advanced Oxidation Processes

Water Treatment – Advanced Oxidation Processes

Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is receiving increased attention in the drinking water industry as a method for utilities to comply with upcoming disinfection regulations. This course presents an overview of the use of UV light and ozone for micropollutant control in drinking water. The micropollutants discussed include methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE), Nnitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), perchlorate, bromate, and the taste-and-odor (T&O) compounds 2-methylisoborneol (MIB) and geosmin. The information presented comes from work conducted at the bench- and pilot-scale involving a pulsed-UV lamp and an over-under ozone contactor system.

Once you complete your course review, take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of thirty-five (35) questions to earn 7 PDH credit.
