Abstract:

In response to the Use Attainability Analysis Study of the Chicago Area Waterway (CAW) the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) investigated the feasibility of installing disinfection processes at their three largest water reclamation plants (WRPs). Various WRPs were contacted and surveyed about their experiences with ultraviolet (UV) disinfection. WRPs surveyed were chosen for further inquiry if they had used UV disinfection for at least one year and had a minimum of 30 MGD flow. The type of upstream processes and effluent quality of the WRPs is summarized. The satisfaction level and major problems with the UV systems are also addressed.
