The limited efficacy of disinfectants, other than ultraviolet irradiation and ozonation, as a barrier against Cryptosporidium parvum in drinking water treatment has underscored the increased importance of oocyst removal by filtration. Currently, no reliable surrogates have been identified for C. parvum removal by filtration. As a result, evaluations of the Cryptosporidium removal by treatment operations have been performed using oocysts. It has typically been assumed that chemically inactivated… CONTINUE READING
