UV Water Treatment - Multi-Barrier Strategy

UV is a perfect fit as an additional barrier in a multi-barrier strategy to provide additional public safety.

Drinking water - multi-barrier

In some regions, it may be required to implement a multi-barrier strategy at the water treatment plant to protect the water supply from a wide variety of pathogens (such as New York City’s Drinking Water, for example).

UV is able to inactivate chlorine-resistant microorganisms like Cryptosporidium and Giardia, along with other waterborne pathogens that traditional disinfection methods would inactivate. Various plants have used a combination of ozone or chlorine in conjunction with UV in order to eliminate the risk of pathogens that are resistant to chemical forms of disinfection (e.g. the Metro Vancouver Coquitlam Plant in Canada uses ozone, chlorine and UV).

Benefits of UV Disinfection for Drinking Water

  • UV disinfection does not form disinfection by-products nor impact the taste or odor of the water.
  • Easily integrated into existing treatment processes because it does not alter nor is it affected by water chemistry (i.e. pH).
  • UV systems are extremely compact due to the short retention time for UV (in most cases within a second), allowing an existing plant to easily retrofit their process to incorporate UV disinfection.
