Disinfection of wastewater is crucial because it prevents the transfer of pathogenic constituents to the environment. As public concerns around preventing the spread of communicable diseases (e.g., salmonella, norovirus, zika, etc.) begins to result in stricter regulatory, safety, and security requirements, the wastewater industry will need to proactively respond. 

The Disinfection Focus Group has been created by LIFT to bring together utility owner/operators with a vested interest in the disinfection space. The group seeks to understand common barriers and challenges, while seeking out innovations in both practice and technologies that advance the state of the industry. It serves as a regular discussion forum to convene experts in the field as facilities seek to better protect public and environmental health.
