Proposal Title: Interactive UV/Ozone System as a Chlorine Alternative
Topic Number: H-SB04.2-003
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Alternatives to Cl2 in Municipal Water Purification
Organization: Vortex Corporation
Address: 400 Prescott Lakes Parkway
Prescott, AZ 86301-6532  
Abstract: Vortex Corporation, in partnership with Prof Charles Gerba and Dr. Rip Rice, proposes to address HSARPA`s need for an effective replacement for chlorine as a primary disinfectant. The proposed water disinfection system combines the synergistic effect of UV and Ozone to produce drinking water to EPA requirements. To date, a small scale device has been manufactured and has been shown to exceed National Sanitation Foundation standards for U.S. drinking water for microbes (>99.9999% reduction), cysts (>99.9999% reduction), lead (>99.9% reduction) and other contaminants. It is through this proposed effort that Vortex intends to validate the efficacy of this unique device for the inactivation of Klebsiella pneuminia, poliovirus and Cryptosporidium as well as for the reduction of disinfection-by-product formation.
