UV Disinfection Systems: Treatment of Ground Water for Small/Medium-Sized Water Utilities

Our colleagues at EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) have announced that registration is now open for the latest webinar in their ongoing series of topics related to small systems.

DATE:              Tuesday, September 29, 2015

TIME:              2:00-3:00PM (eastern) with optional Q&A until 3:30PM

REGISTER:     https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7950813040781959937

Recent research, technology advancements, and new drinking water regulations have brought significant attention to UV disinfection as an option for microbial treatment for small- and medium-sized public water systems (PWSs). UV disinfection is an effective treatment for the inactivation of Cryptosporidium in treatment of surface water supplies.  However, the majority of PWSs serve ground water and the majority of ground water systems serve less than 3,300 people.  UV disinfection can provide effective virus treatment and appropriately sized UV disinfection systems for small water systems have become more available.

This webinar will discuss EPA’s evaluation, in partnership with state and industry collaborators, of new approaches for validating UV reactors to meet ground water and surface water pathogen inactivation, including viruses for low-pressure and medium-pressure UV systems.  For more information, view the attached webinar flyer.
