Disinfection of Storm Sewage Discharges

 
Price: £14  

The review evaluated the evidence for the satisfactory performance of storm sewage disinfection techniques as an alternative to increased storm sewage storage and subsequent return to full treatment.  A review of the effectiveness of a range of alternative disinfection technologies, including pre-treatment requirements, has identified UV irradiation technologies and chlorination as the technologies with the greatest potential.  Interpretation of a storm sewage trial (United Utilities) and a microwave UV irradiation trial (Yorkshire Water) were included in the review.
A specification for conducting a field-scale practical demonstration of the efficacy of candidate pre-treatment/ disinfection technologies has been prepared following discussion with manufacturers.
