Chlorinating/Disinfecting Potable Water Mains
Potable water main chlorination and water main disinfection is a process used in water pipelines to kill and remove harmful bacteria (especially coliform bacteria) as confirmed by laboratory analysis. The ultimate goal of this process is to eliminate waterborne pathogens that pose a risk to cause an outbreak of disease.
Using a chlorine solution containing sodium hypochlorite, the solution is injected into the water mains to oxidize microbiological material, organic, and inorganic compounds.
It becomes necessary for health and safety reasons and required by government rules and regulations that potable water mains be chlorinated/disinfected:
Environmental Systems Testing Services strictly uses and adheres to the water main chlorination, water main sterilization and water main disinfection methods as detailed in specifications and in accordance with A.W.W.A. and EPA Standards.
