The use of ozone in treatment of water dates back more than 100 years, but its widespread use did not really start until the late 1970s and early 1980s when it began to be used by both drinking water and wastewater treatment facilities. Most initial applications of ozone were focused on its benefits as a strong disinfectant. However, as its use increased, its properties as a very strong oxidant led to its application for taste and odor control, color removal, and iron and manganese oxidation; and its microflocculation capabilities reduced coagulation requirements and improved the performance of filtration. A recent surge in its interest and application in drinking water, water reuse, and wastewater is due to research showing that it is very effective for removal of some microconstituents.
