Disinfection is the treatment process used to destroy or inactivate disease-causing
(pathogenic) organisms. The consequences of waterborne disease range from mild
illness to death. It has been found that filtration and subsequent disinfection to control disease-causing organisms is sufficient to protect public health.
This course is designed for water treatment plant operators.
1. Apply principles of disinfection to protect public health
2. Apply provincial and federal regulations related to disinfection
3. Conduct routine tests to verify disinfection (bacteria, chlorine residual, turbidity)
4. Determine chlorine demand and chlorine breakpoint for a raw water source
5. Calculate chlorine dosages based upon the CT concept
6. Operate and maintain liquid and gas chlorine delivery systems
7. Control THM production through chloramination or post filtration chlorination
8. Contain chlorine spills and properly utilize safety equipment
9. Compare the advantages of chlorination to alternative disinfection systems
including UV and ozone.
