Wednesday, July 5, 2023

Ixom Watercare has unique application and equipment manufacturing expertise in the sphere of disinfection by-products (DBPs) including prevention, mitigation and removal strategies from the water treatment plant throughout distribution.

We put together this special presentation to explore and discuss a variety of strategies and technology options to ensure DBP compliance throughout a water system. It is ~30-40 minute in length and is designed for use in trainings, lunch & learns, conferences and may be eligible for continuing education (CE) credit. We think you will find the information valuable for you and your organization. Please see the quick overview and outline below.

Quick Presentation Overview

Title: Disinfection By-Products In Drinking Water: Prevention and Treatment Optimization.
Audience: WTP Operators and Consulting Engineers
Purpose: For educational use at conferences, trainings, lunch & learns, etc.
Duration: 30 to 40 minutes with 15-minute Q&A

Disinfection by-products are a key compliance concern for many drinking water treatment systems. Most notable of regulated DBPs in the United States are trihalomethanes (THMs) and haloacetic acids (HAAs) in chlorinated systems. Because water system variables and needs vary greatly from locale to locale, fully understanding the available DBP prevention and treatment options is important to successfully plan and implement a DBP strategy.

This presentation gives an overview of DBPs, what they are, how they are formed, and pertinent compliance regulations. We will then explore prevention and treatment optimization strategies currently available in the marketplace.
