Photoreactivation of Escherichia coli following medium-pressure ultraviolet disinfection and its control using chloramination



Photoreactivation of Escherichia coli following medium-pressure ultraviolet disinfection and its control using chloramination



Water Science and Technology 53(6): 123-129



Ultraviolet (UV) disinfection is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative disinfection technology to chlorination in recent years. In this study, we investigated the photoreactivation of Escherichia coli following medium-pressure (MP) UV disinfection of synthetic water by a bench-scale collimated beam apparatus. The UV doses ranged from 1.6 -19.7 mWs/cm2 and photoreactivation was investigated for 6 hours under fluorescent light.
