Wastewater Chloramination For Use in Trihalomethane Formation Control
Abstract:Camp Dresser & McKee Inc (CDM) and the Somerset Raritan Valley Sewerage Authority (SRVSA) have jointed pursued research into the use of wastewater chloramination for the control of trihalomethane compounds. This research was conducted at the SRVSA's wastewater treatment facilities located in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The project team evaluated the impact Ammonia-N (NH3-N) dosage levels had on the degree of disinfection and trihalomethane compared concentration. These evaluations were carried out in both a laboratory setting and in a small-scale pilot study. CDM concluded that effective monitoring of effluent NH3-N can facilitate the use of wastewater chloramination to provide both adequate disinfection and the prevention of trihalomethane compounds.
