RE: Municipal Wastewater Effluents



Deb Foster,
A great substitute for chlorination of waste water is to use ozone. Our
P2Infohouse database has 11 articles on the subject. Open up that database
on our website, found under my name. Type ozone in one box of the search
engine, and wastewater in the other box. Try key words from your other
questions in the same database.

Subject: Municipal Wastewater Effluents


Hi Everyone

C2P2 is currently exploring issues related to municipal wastewater
effluents.
We are looking for contacts in organizations around the world who could
provide
us further information on the following:

    -Alternatives to chlorination for disinfection of wastewater effluent
(municipal or industrial)
    -Alternatives for using nonyl phenol and its ethoxylates (NPE) and
ammonia
    -'At the source control' policies, programs, practices, that
municipalities
who directly discharge their treated wastewater effluent to surface waters
can
implement to reduce the pollutant loadings to wastewater treatment plants.
Some
examples of these programs include: sewer use bylaws, water pricing and
metering; effluent treatment user fees, sectoral best management practices
which
promote the reduction or elimination of use of regulated substances at
industries & institutions.
    -'At the source control' policies, programs, practices that institutions
or
organizations who directly discharge their wastewater effluent to surface
waters
(such as at some First Nation and federal facilities) can implement to
reduce
their pollutant loadings.

Thank you in advance.
