The new European regulation on treated water focuses on oxidation by-products and consequently the use of ozone for parasites and virus inactivation should be limited. To achieve the necessary removal of parasites by a multi-barrier water treatment plant, physical removal needs to achieve consistently high levels of particle and microorganism removal. TheNeuilly-sur-Marne treatment plant treats raw water of particularly poor bacteriological quality. In order to improve the filtered water quality, preozonationhas been tested in a pilot scale study. Results obtained have confirmed that, with this sort of raw water, preozonation directly on the raw water or on the settled water can provide a significant improvement in filtered water. This is true for both particles and coliforms. It appears that an ozone dose of 0.5 g/m3 is enough to achieve a constant level of efficiency.
