Water Treatment – Disinfection

Water Treatment – Disinfection

The overriding objective of water treatment is the removal or inactivation of pathogenic micro-organisms to prevent the spread of waterborne disease. It is important that water treatment works be equipped with adequate disinfection systems, when pristine water supplies collected from catchments totally under the control of the water supply authority are now a rarity. Removal of pathogenic organisms is effected by processes involving addition of coagulant chemicals followed by sedimentation and filtration and by other filtration processes such as membrane filtration.

This course provides an overview of the design and operation of water treatment systems. It provides an analysis of water disinfection and compliance with other water quality parameters, particularly in relation to disinfection by-products. This course addresses the use of alternative disinfection technologies such as ultraviolet (UV) disinfection and the development of associated dose validation techniques and regulations.
