The bio-stability of ultraviolet disinfected reused water from a tertiary biological wastewater treatment plant was investigated, using laboratory-scale simulated static water pipelines. UV disinfection was found not to be able to maintain its disinfection effect over a few days, such that the total bacterial count increased up to the same level as that for non-disinfected samples in only 5 days. Higher temperature enhanced the increase of bacterial counts in UV-treated samples, while at the… CONTINUE READING
