Project Number # 4510-15
Project Leader: Adam Tomlinson
Water safety and water security remains one of the greatest concerns with regards to human health. To ensure a potable water source, it is imperative that chemical disinfection is applied to remove harmful pathogenic microorganisms. However, the chlorination of water results in a residual challenge caused by the formation of disinfection by-products. It is necessary to further investigate the contribution phytoplankton has on the formation of disinfection by-products during the disinfection process.
