Alternative Approaches to Bacterial Reduction for WwTW Discharges: Phase 2 Field Trials and UV Desk Study

 
Price: £21  

EU Legislation has driven continuous wastewater discharge disinfection focussing on UV treatment. Reducing spills of intermittents by providing storage has been the normal approach.

This study proposes determining disinfection requirements on a site specific basis. The approach links the UV 'validated' dose to the microbial reduction achieved. The benefit of this approach is to achieve a reactor design validated against the microbial reduction required.

Benefits include: better targeted investment, supported by evidence; minimised capital and operating costs through better understanding of carbon costs associated with UV irradiation; demonstration of the methodology enabling production of site specific evidence to support a flexible, consistent approach to the disinfection of discharges; ability to meet revised bathing water directive targets and reduce the risk of EU infractions and beach closures; applicability of the protocol to intermittent discharge disinfection.
