  11. 11. Relevance of water parameters
  12. 12. Loss of disinfection power
  13. 13. C x T a measure for disinfactant effectiveness disinfection is monitored using a concept referred to as the &quot;CxT&quot; value. This value relates the amount of time (&quot;T&quot;) needed for a concentration of residual disinfectant (&quot;C&quot;) to inactivate a particular micro-organism under specific operating conditions. Water treatment plants are given &quot;credit&quot; for achieving different levels of microorganism inactivation.
  14. 14. C x T a measure for disinfactant effectiveness Therefore, the best disinfectants can achieve highest disinfection by the lowest &quot;CxT&quot; product . Water plants usually have &quot;CxT&quot; requirements that insure adequate disinfection under various operating conditions and extremes, such as high flows and low temperatures, for example. The &quot;CxT&quot; Values will vary as a function of different disinfectants, temperatures and pH's. The &quot;CxT&quot; values for ClO2 are generally between those for free chlorine and ozone (see Table 3).

  24. 24. What are Disinfection Byproducts? Disinfection byproducts are formed when disinfectants used in a water treatment react with bromide and/or natural organic matter (i.e., decaying vegetation) present in the source water. Different disinfectants produce different types or amounts of disinfection byproducts. Disinfection byproducts for which regulations have been established have been identified in drinking water, including trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids, bromate, and chlorite.
  25. 25. What Regulations Control Disinfection Byproducts? In December 1998, EPA published the Stage 1 Disinfectants/Disinfection Byproducts Rule that requires water systems to use treatment methods to reduce the formation of disinfection byproducts and to meet the following standards: total trihalomethanes (TTHM)(measured as the sum concentration of chloroform, bromoform, bromodichloromethane, and dibromochloromethane) at 80 parts per billion (ppb) , haloacetic acids (HAA5) (measured as the sum concentration of monochloroacetic acid, dichloroacetic acid, trichloroacetic acid, monobromoacetic acid, and dibromoacetic acid) at 60 ppb , bromate at 10 ppb , and chlorite at 1.0 parts per million (ppm). The standards for TTHM, HAA5, and bromate are annual averages. For chlorite, the standard is an average of a three samples taken at least monthly. Data from the ICR and research will be used to consider further disinfection byproduct control under a Stage 2 Disinfectants/Disinfection rule, scheduled to be published in May 2002.
