Most common types of water contain a spectrum of biological organisms from algae through to bacteria and viruses, many of which can be highly pathogenic, that is responsible for causing disease.

An effective disinfection system, is able to reduce or eradicate water borne organisms, resulting in a safer supply of water or wastewater.


In order to satisfy the increasing water quality requirements for potable water, industrial and other specialist water requirements, the removal of biological organisms represents an important requirement. In recent years, a range of disinfection processes, most commonly, chemical dosing and UV disinfection processes have been adopted, in order to address these requirements.

Traditionally, chlorination, or the process of adding chlorine to water, most commonly achieved through the addition of sodium hypochlorite, or less commonly through the injection of chlorine gas, has been utilised in order to destroy common pathogens.

More recently, ultraviolet (UV) based disinfection systems are increasingly being used to reduce or eradicate water borne organisms including algae, bacteria, fungi, viruses, including common pathogens such as E.coli, fecal coliform, enterococci, fusarium, kerboard-bacter, ralstonia pythium and phytobacteria, giardia, legionella and salmonella.

The convenience of UV based disinfection systems is considered by many water treatment operators as a safer alternative to chemical-based dosing systems, however, the most optimal disinfection solutions will depend on the quality of the feed, process or wastewater being treated, and the specific objectives/requirements for the disinfection process.


At Parkway, our team of water treatment technicians and engineers is able to assist in developing a reliable and effective disinfection solution, to meet project specific requirements, including the toughest disinfection challenges.
