Disinfectant  Residual Control System Eliminates  Deep Cycling, Breakpoint Chlorination

Walnut Valley, CA

Walnut Valley relies primarily on imported water from wholesalers. While monochloramine provides excellent disinfectant persistence and a decreased risk for THM production as compared to free chlorine, it naturally decomposes and generates ammonia.  Ammonia becomes a food source for naturally occurring ammonia/nitrite oxidizing bacteria and can lead to nitrification.  Aware of this risk, Walnut Valley aggressively pursued operational strategies in their water storage tanks to limit nitrification risk.
