SEWAGE & WASTEWATER EFFLUENT TREATMENT
The disinfection of sewage effluent must be evaluated by determining the total number of coliform bacteria and/or fecal coliform bacteria, as determined by
the Most Probable Number (MPN) procedure, if the chlorinated effluent has been reduced to or below the maximum permitted by the controlling regulatory
jurisdiction.
On the average, satisfactory disinfection of secondary wastewater effluent can be obtained when the chlorine residual is 0.5 ppm after 15 minutes contact. Although the chlorine residual is the critical factor in disinfection, the importance of correlating chlorine residual with bacterial kill must be emphasized. The MPN
of the effluent, which is directly related to the water quality standards requirements, must be the final and primary standard and the chlorine residual must be
considered an operating standard valid only to the extent verified by the coliform quality of the effluent.
The following are critical factors affecting wastewater disinfection.
1. Mixing: It is imperative that the product and the wastewater be instantaneously and completely flash mixed to assure reaction with every chemically active
soluble and particulate component of the wastewater.
2. Contacting: Upon flash mixing, the flow through the system must be maintained.
3. Dosage/Residual Control: Successful disinfection is extremely dependent on response to fluctuating chlorine demand to maintain a predetermined, desirable chlorine level. Secondary effluent must contain 0.2 to 1.0 ppm chlorine residual after a 15 to 30 minute contact time. A reasonable average of residual
chlorine is 0.5 ppm after 15 minutes of contact time.
SEWAGE & WASTEWATER EFFLUENT TREATMENT:
EFFLUENT SLIME CONTROL: Apply a 100 to 1,000 ppm available chlorine solution at a location which will allow complete mixing. Prepare this solution by mixing 2 to 20 oz. of this product with 100 gallons of water. Once control is evident, apply a 15 ppm available chlorine solution. Prepare this solution by mixing
0.3 oz. of this product with 100 gallons of water.
FILTER BEDS: SLIME CONTROL: Remove filter from service, drain to a depth of 1 ft. above filter sand, and add 10 oz. of product per 20 sq. ft. evenly over the
surface. Wait 30 minutes before draining water to a level that is even with the top of the filter. Wait for 4 to 6 hours before completely draining and backwashing
filter.
DISINFECTION OF DRINKING WATER (EMERGENCY / PUBLIC / INDIVIDUAL SYSTEMS)
PUBLIC SYSTEMS: Add this product at the rate of 1 oz. of this product to 6000 gallons of water to be treated using a hypochlorinator until a free available chlorine residual of at least 0.2 ppm and no more than 0.6 ppm is attained throughout the distribution system. Check water frequently with a chlorine test kit. Bacteriological sampling must be conducted at a frequency no less than that prescribed by the National Primary Drinking Water Regulations. Contact your local
Health Department for further details.
INDIVIDUAL SYSTEMS: DUG WELLS: Upon completion of the casing (lining) wash the interior of the casing (lining) with 100 ppm available chlorine solution
using a stiff brush. This solution can be made by thoroughly mixing 1 oz. of this product into 40 gallons of water. After covering the well, pour the sanitizing
solution into the well through both the pipe-sleeve opening and the pipeline. Wash the exterior of the pump cylinder also with the sanitizing solution. Start pump
and pump water until strong odor of chlorine in water is noted. Stop pump and wait at least 24 hours. After 24 hours flush well until all traces of chlorine have
been removed from the water. Contact your local Health Department for further details.
INDIVIDUAL WATER SYSTEMS: DRILLED, DRIVEN & BORED WELLS: Run pump until water is as free from turbidity as possible. Pour a 100 ppm available
chlorine sanitizing solution into the well. This solution can be made by thoroughly mixing 1 oz. of this product into 40 gallons of water. Add 5 to 10 gallons of
clean, chlorinated water to the well in order to force the sanitizer into the rock formation. Wash the exterior of pump cylinder with the sanitizer. Drop pipeline
into well, start pump and pump water until strong odor of chlorine in water is noted. Stop pump and wait at least 24 hours. After 24 hours flush well until all
traces of chlorine have been removed from the water. Deep wells with high water levels necessitate the use of special methods for introduction of the sanitizer
into the well. Consult your local Health Department for further details.
INDIVIDUAL WATER SYSTEMS: FLOWING ARTESIAN WELLS: Artesian wells generally do not require disinfection. If analyses indicate persistent contamination, the well must be disinfected. Consult your local Health Department for further details.
EMERGENCY DISINFECTION: When boiling of water for 1 minute is not practical, water can be made potable by using this product. Prior to addition of the
sanitizer, remove all suspended material by filtration or by allowing it to settle to the bottom. Decant the clarified, contaminated water to a clean container and
add 1 grain of this product to 1 gallon of water. One grain is approximately the size of the letter "O" in this sentence. Allow the treated water to stand for 30
minutes. Properly treated water must have a slight chlorine odor. If not, repeat dosage and allow the water to stand an additional 15 minutes. The treated water
can then be made palatable by pouring it between clean containers several times.
PUBLIC WATER SYSTEMS
MAINS: Thoroughly flush section to be sanitized by discharging from hydrants. Permit a water flow of at least 2.5 feet per minute to continue under pressure
while injecting this product by means of a hypochlorinator. Stop water flow when a chlorine residual test of 50 ppm is obtained at the low pressure end of the
new main section after a 24 hour retention time. When chlorination is completed, the system must be flushed free of all heavily chlorinated water.
NEW TANKS, BASINS, ETC.: Remove all physical soil from surfaces. Place 4 oz. of this product for each 5 cubic feet of working capacity (500 ppm available
chlorine). Fill to working capacity and allow to stand for at least 4 hours. Drain and flush with potable water and return to surface.
NEW FILTER SAND: Apply 16 oz. of this product for each 150 to 200 cubic feet of sand. The action of the product dissolving as the water passes through the
bed will aid in sanitizing the new sand.
NEW WELLS: Flush the casing with a 50 ppm available chlorine solution of water containing 1 oz. of this product for each 100 gallons of water. The solution
must be pumped or fed by gravity into the well after thorough mixing with agitation. The well must stand for several hours or overnight under chlorination. It
must then be pumped until a representative raw water sample is obtained. Bacterial examination of the water will indicate whether further treatment is necessary.
EXISTING EQUIPMENT: Remove equipment from service, thoroughly clean surfaces of all physical soil. Sanitize by placing 4 oz. of this product for each 5 cubic
feet capacity (approximately 500 ppm available chlorine). Fill to working capacity and let stand for at least 4 hours. Drain and place in service. If previous treatment is not practical, surfaces may be sprayed with a solution containing 1 oz. of this product for each 5 gallons of water (approximately 1000 ppm available
chlorine). After drying, flush with water and return to service.
CONTROL OF BACTERIA, ALGAE, SLIME BUILD-UP AND CLOGGING IN SPECIFIED IRRIGATION SYSTEMS:
This product is mixed with water to product a chlorine solution. Always add this product to water, never add water to this product. To product a 0.5% available chlorine solution, add 1.0 dry oz. of this product to one (1) gallon of water. This solution is fed by gravity or a metering pump to the irrigation system
water to achieve the desired available chlorine strength in the water. The Application Rates section provides the levels of free residual chlorine needed to prevent or address bio-fouling occurring in drip, trickle irrigation systems. When utilizing a metering pump, refer to the instruction manual for varying the output
of the pump. This product is to be applied through drip/trickle and sprinkler irrigation systems only for agricultural crops only where this manner of use will
not cause crop damage.
APPLICATION RATES
If the irrigation water has high levels of nutrients causing bacterial, algal, or other bio-fouling that reduces system performance, continuous use of this product is necessary. The level of free residual chlorine for continuous feed is 1 to 2 ppm measured at the end of the farthest lateral using a good quality test kit
for free chlorine (also called "free residual" or "free available" chlorine).'"
Periodic shock treatments at a higher available chlorine rate of up to 20 ppm free residual is appropriate where bacteria and/or algae clogging and build-up
are not managed by maintaining a continuous residual. The frequency of the shock application depends upon the frequency and extent of bio-clogging.
Superchlorination, bringing concentrations to as much as 100 ppm total available chlorine, is for reclaiming low-volume irrigation systems if clogged by algae
and bacterial slimes. Set the metering pump to deliver 100 ppm in the drip system and monitor the free chlorine residual at the end of the farthest lateral. As
soon as it is established that the free residual reading is between 10-20 ppm, shut the system down and leave it undisturbed for up to 24 hours. Then flush all
submains and laterals with fresh water. Superchlorination will not dissolve/remove scale or inorganic sediment fouling. "'Note: To correctly establish the dose
setting required, it is necessary to measure the free chlorine concentration (ppm) at the end of the treated increment in the field and adjust the dose setting
until the desired free chlorine concentration is obtained. This is because contaminants in the water consume available chlorine resulting in a concentration that
is less than the concentration desired as specific above. Only experience can establish the actual metering pump settings required to provide the amount of
free chlorine at the end of the farthest lateral (and consequent treatment of the irrigation system). Normally the treatment level at the end of the farthest lateral
will be 1-2 ppm free chlorine.
GENERAL APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Chlorination must be started during irrigation, near the end of the irrigation sequence, but early enough to establish the desired free chlorine concentration
throughout the system being treated. Apply this product upstream of the filter to help keep filter clean.
Determine the level of free chlorine as described above, using a free chlorine test kit. Allow sufficient time to achieve a steady reading.
DO NOT apply this product when fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides are being injected since they will consume the available chlorine and produce toxic reaction products. Shut down the product feed as soon as the irrigation water is switched to the next irrigation sector. Leave the treated water residing in the
section that has been shut down. Refer to the metering pump use instructions as needed.
