Point Source Disinfection of New Jersey Wet Weather Events: Stormwater and Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs)
Abstract:Over the last several years, the United States finally began the process for improving water quality, in earnest. This effort is catalyzed by Advocacy groups, forward thinking, municipalities and states such as New Jersey and California, and in conjunction with a handful of aggressive elected Officials. A major driving force of this focus is the interest in the reduction of pathogens in our surface waters, and the ultimate improvement in public health. Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) are presently either written, or in process, specifically targeting the waterborne pathogens: bacteria, protozoa and viruses.
