Prepared by the Water Supply Engineering Technical Committee of the Infrastructure Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE. This report provides a comprehensive survey of the state of the art in drinking water treatment methods and technologies for controlling microorganisms. Academics, practicing engineers, and environmental scientists offer insight into the risks posed by microbes in drinking water and , more importantly, their control through treatment and disinfection. The report supplies an overview of the subject for nonspecialists and becomes a valuable technical reference for experienced practitioners. Topics include: Arisks posed by pathogens in drinking water; Amicrobially-mediated corrosion and water quality deterioration; Aindicator concept and its application in water supply; Aremoval of organisms by flocculation/sedimentation; Aair stripping and aeration; Aslow sand filtration; Arapid sand filtration; Agranular activated carbon/biological activated carbon; Acontrol of microorganisms in drinking water by pressure-driven membrane processes; Ageneral kinetics of disinfection processes; Achlorine and chloramines; Achlorine dioxide in drinking water treatment; Aultraviolet disinfection; Aozone disinfection in drinking water; and Aemerging pathogens of concern in drinking water.Water Environment Federation (WEF) (1996) aquot;Ozone Disinfection, aquot; in Wastewater Disinfection: Manual of Practice FD- 10, ...
