Price: £11  

This report describes in detail the work undertaken to identify Cryptosporidium risks associated with water treatment plant operation, and ways of overcoming these risks. Particular areas for investigation are: - Aspects of rapid gravity filter operation which can influence the risk of Cryptosporidium oocyst breakthrough into the filtered water; Use of particle size monitors as indicators of filtration performance, compared with turbidimeters; Effects of recycling of settled backwash water supernatants; Potential for penetration of oocysts into a slow sand filter bed; Potential of ozone and UV irradiation as disinfectants for Cryptosporidium; Potential for microfiltration for control of Cryptosporidium in water treatment; Use of bacterial spores as surrogates for Cryptosporidium during water treatment.
