Implications for Projects Regulatory requirements Hydraulic conditions / facility layout Availability of pre-validated reactors NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Brief Case Studies UV Fundamentals Why Consider UV? Goal of highest-quality water that meets regulations and the cost expectations of our customers.

UV Transmittance (UVT) UV intensity at given operating conditions NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 LT2 regulatory requirement Regulatory Requirement NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 From LT2ESWTR (2006):

Must use reactors that have undergone validation testing. Must account for UVT, sleeve fouling, lamp aging, uncertainties, dose distributions, lamp failures, and inlet/outlet hydraulics. Must perform full-scale testing that conforms to installation and uses a test microorganism with known dose-response characteristics.

after the reactor to ultimately determine log inactivation of challenge microorganism Conducted under a variety of operating conditions NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Flow Flow rate rate UV UV transmittance

Microorganism / Surrogate (UV Sensitivity) Collimated beam apparatus: Specific UV doses to sample water that contains known concentration of the Challenge Microbe. NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Sample effluent to determine the degree of inactivation. Compare inactivation to UV Dose Response curve to determine

dose delivered by the reactor under various operating conditions. Inactivation is measured and plotted for the different UV doses to establish a DoseResponse curve. RED Validation Facility Set-Up: NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Johnstown, NY

Dreq VF Validated Dose Reduction Equivalent Dose Required (Regulated) Dose Validation Factor BRED x (1+Uval) NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 RED Bias (BRED ) is a function of test surrogate and dose RED distribution UVDGM UVDGM assumes

assumes a worst worst case dose distribution distribution Applies assumption to all reactors RED Bias RED bias (BRED RED) is a correction factor Difference between expected dose delivered to target pathogen and actual dose measured using a surrogate organism during testing Bioassay Organism Organisms have different sensitivities to UV Difference between Target and Challenge Organism will affect RED Special considerations related to MP systems NC AWWA Water

JAMWEA 20102011 Guidance Manual protocols account for different organism sensitivities The more sensitive the organism, the lower the bias factor UVDGM Checklists NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Checklist 5.3: Key Elements of Validation Report Checklist 5.4: Review for QA/QC Checklist 5.5: Review for Key Validation Report Elements

Impact of UV Wavelength Because MS2 is more sensitive to 240 nm than Crypto, MP systems validated with MS2 might be providing less Crypto inactivation than currently thought. Industry leaders (mfrs, regulators, consultants, utilities) working on potential solutions.

Water JAMWEA 20102011 Isolation Valve Hydraulic Conditions UVDGM provides guidance on installation hydraulics Installation must be better than validation Provide hydraulic challenge during validation Three options: NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 1. 5 straight pipe diameters upstream between UV

reactor and any hydraulic configuration 2. Match validation for 10 diameters upstream and 5 diameters downstream 3. Velocity profiles within 20% UVDGM Recommended Piping NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Option 1 NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011

Velocity Profile into Reactor Validation Options NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Pre-validated Reactors Site-specific Validation Pre-validated Reactors One option for implementing UV is to use pre-validated reactors Reactors previously validated for a wide range of operating conditions Design considerations

NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 Retrofits may limit available reactors due to hydraulic considerations Site Specific Validation Hydraulic conditions or water quality limitations Validation facility or on-site On-site requires additional equipment, tanks, piping, etc NC AWWA Water JAMWEA

20102011 Costs and schedule need to be considered in planning State Requirements for Validation and System Approval State Regulator has final approval UVDGM is only a guidance document No national standard What is acceptable varies from state to state NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 MS-2 accepted biodosimeter

T1, T4, T7, Qbeta , etc. are other options which beta may or may not be accepted by a state regulatory agency Case Studies NC AWWA Water JAMWEA 20102011 1. 2. 3. Pre-validated Reactors Site Specific Validation Beyond Validation
