Chlorination of Drinking Water

The first 2 hours of this two-part training course compares the available methods of feeding chlorine, tablet chlorination, gas, bleach and on-site chlorine. A description of the 4 common chlorination methods for water disinfection including the operational, regulatory, safety, and economic considerations for each method will be presented. An Excel based economic model that can be used by operating utilities to assess the relative economics of each technology will also be presented. The third and final hour of the training will cover field testing for chlorine residual, including dilutions for high concentrations and the required procedure documentation and reporting requirements
