As a result of the recently proposed mandatory groundwater disinfection requirements to inactivate viruses in potable water supplies, there has been increasing interest in virus fate and transport in the subsurface. Several models have been developed to predict the fate of viruses in groundwater, but few include transport in the unsaturated zone and all… CONTINUE READING
