C. T Calculation Math for Water Technology MTH 082 (pg. 468) Math for Water Technology MTH 082 (pg. 468) “Required by Law”

C. T calculation “C” is the concentration of chlorine, “T” is the amount of time the water has been in contact with chlorine before the first user. Calculated daily and compared against the EPA CT “Required” Table “C” is the concentration of chlorine, “T” is the amount of time the water has been in contact with chlorine before the first user. Calculated daily and compared against the EPA CT “Required” Table EPA rules states - “Measurements must be taken on the same day of the week, every week, for one year (52 measurements), during peak hourly flow for that day. Data can be measured manually or with on-line instrumentation.”

C. T Calculation Problems To calculate the contact time T, the results of a recent tracer study must be used!! The peak flow must be measured from the effluent side of the clearwell or contact chamber, NOT the flow through the plant. The chlorine residual, pH, and temperature values used to calculate CT must be measured at the effluent side of the clearwell or contact chamber, or before the first user. To calculate the contact time T, the results of a recent tracer study must be used!! The peak flow must be measured from the effluent side of the clearwell or contact chamber, NOT the flow through the plant. The chlorine residual, pH, and temperature values used to calculate CT must be measured at the effluent side of the clearwell or contact chamber, or before the first user.

Disinfection CT Rules 1.Chlorine residuals used for CT calculations are measured after contact, but before first customer. 2. Contact times are determined by calculating the hydraulic detention time (HDT) as water flows through pipes and tanks. Based on highest flow of day. 1.Chlorine residuals used for CT calculations are measured after contact, but before first customer. 2. Contact times are determined by calculating the hydraulic detention time (HDT) as water flows through pipes and tanks. Based on highest flow of day.

Disinfection CT Rules 3. Water flowing through pipes provides contact times that are equal to the calculated HDT. Circular or rectangular tanks used for contact time are given only partial credit due to short circuiting.
