New WEF Handbook Covers Peracetic Acid Disinfection

Utilities have recognized the value of peracetic acid (PAA) as a wastewater and stormwater disinfectant for years, but limited education and design guidance have impeded its implementation. That is until now.

Peracetic Acid Disinfection: Implementation Considerations for Water Resource Recovery Facilities, a new WEF special publication, offers a stepwise approach to PAA implementation for water resource recovery facilities. The guide aids disinfection professionals, water resource recovery facility designers, resource planners, and regulators as they evaluate and implement PAA disinfection technologies. The new publication traverses the chemistry and kinetics of PAA, regulatory and design considerations, day to day operations, and more.

Key Features:

  • Delivers comprehensive coverage of the chemistry and kinetics of PAA disinfection

  • Reflects current state of practice for design, permitting, implementation and operation of PAA disinfection systems

  • Offers how-to guide on testing for evaluation of technical and economic feasibility of PAA disinfection

  • Shares clear explanation of regulatory issues and considerations

  • Presents case study examples for a wide range of applications – both small and large facilities
