Evaluation of Dechlorinating Agents and Disposable Containers for Odor Testing of Drinking Water

  title={Evaluation of Dechlorinating Agents and Disposable Containers for Odor Testing of Drinking Water},
  author={Jennifer L. Worley},
In the drinking water field, utilities often need an efficient yet reliable way to detect odorous compounds. Because many utilities use chlorine to disinfect the water, chlorine odors often masks other more subtle odors that may eventually cause consumer complaints. Consequently, odor monitoring at the water treatment plant, where chlorine concentrations are at a peak, may not identify potential displeasing smells. Proper evaluation of these odor-causing substances requires that the chlorine… Expand
Kinetics of tap water dechlorination and aquatic health impacts of selected dechlorination chemicals
The kinetics of seven dechlorination agents (DA) was studied to identify the efficacy of dechlorination under variable dosage, mixing (periodic/continuous), and pH conditions (6.5 8.6 and/or >9).Expand
Occurrence and formation of chloro- and bromo-benzoquinones during drinking water disinfection.
It is demonstrated that chlorination produces the highest amounts of DCBQ, while pre-ozonation increases the formation of DBBQ in the presence of bromide, and authentic samples showDCBQ and D BBQ as the most abundant and frequently detectable HBQs. Expand
Enhanced electrochemical oxidation process with hydrogen peroxide pretreatment for removal of high strength ammonia from semiconductor wastewater
Abstract Electrochemical oxidation (EO) process was investigated for decomposing ammonia in wastewater from semiconductor industry. This wastewater typically contains high concentration of hydrogenExpand
Control of bacterial contamination during marine fish processing
It is necessary to conduct cost/benefit studies of sanitising agent agents that are effective in sea water and their impact on the quality and safety of marine fish, and suitable disinfectants effective inSea water need to be explored and authenticated. Expand

Perceptional and Socio-Demographic Factors Associated with Household Drinking Water Management Strategies in Rural Puerto Rico
Based on informal discussions with community members, it is suggested that water quality may be improved if PRASA systems improve the taste and odor of tap water, possibly by allowing for dechlorination prior to distribution, and if non-PRASA Systems reduce the turbidity of water at the tap,possibly by increasing the degree of chlorination and filteringPrior to distribution.

Evaluating activated carbons for removing low concentrations of taste- and odor-producing organics
Equilibrium studies were conducted that used closed-loop stripping analysis in conjunction with experimental methodologies to evaluate the performance of activated carbons for removing five specificExpand
A Standard Method for Quantification of Earthy-Musty Odorants in Water, Sediments, and Algal Cultures
The closed-loop stripping analysis (CLSA) method of Grob, in combination with gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), has been used in the determination of five earthy-musty-smelling compoundsExpand

FPA of selected odorous compounds
The odors of 15 organic compounds were evaluated by the flavor profile analysis (FPA) method. The FPA data were well described by the Weber-Fechner law, as indicated by the R 2 values (0.6-0.99).Expand
