Ultraviolet Disinfection Training Workshop


This workshop investigates the latest UV disinfection techniques and applications for both potable and wastewaters. Through the use of superb interactive and text and graphics, operations personnel explore the advantages of UV systems compared to typical chemical disinfection systems like Chlorine or Ozone. Learn why the latest research suggest low-dose UV may be very effective at controlling Giardian and Cryptosporidium in potable waters, define and examine what UV is, how does it differs versus other oxidizer based disinfection systems, understand the disadvantages. Review appropriate applications, in community and non-community potable waters and wastewaters. If there is an alternative to chlorine, learn why UV may be the low cost choice for installation, operation, and maintenance.

Learning Objectives

  • Define how ultraviolet systems work and outline the differences with traditional chemical disinfection.
  • Describe how to apply ultraviolet technology in large, and small water/wastewater systems.
  • Design a simple ultraviolet system, by outlining basic water quality, hydraulic, and applications requirements.
