Reading the Tea Leaves - Disinfecting Effluent from Natural Systems
Abstract:The use of natural systems to treat wastewater is an emerging technology, which has been gaining acceptance in recent years. It can be effectively applied in rural settings providing ample land area and buffer zones for these systems. The effective disinfection of effluent from a natural system can be challenging, due to environmental factors created within the wetland which can interfere with modern systems, particularly those using ultraviolet (UV) light.
This paper will review performance of a UV disinfection system operating in conjunction with a constructed wetlands treatment facility. The performance will be compared to UV disinfection systems operating in conjunction with other types of treatment.
