Many regions of the United States, experiencing rapid population growth and faced with the challenge of meeting increased water demands, are turning to reclaimed water as an alternative water supply source. Concurrent with the rising need for reclaimed water is the rising public concern
over emerging pathogens and micropollutants. As part of the WateReuse Foundation's (WRF) project on "Innovative Treatment Technologies for Reclaimed Water" (WRF 02-009), two advanced oxidation processes using ozone/hydrogen peroxide (O3 / H2 O2 ) and ultraviolet
light/hydrogen peroxide (UV/ H2 O2 ) were tested for pathogen and microcontaminant destruction on filtered wastewater effluents.
