The water to be disinfected is led past ultraviolet (UV) light lamps. As no chemicals are used in disinfection, the treated water has no adverse effects on organisms. The major disadvantage of UV disinfection is the need for frequent lamp maintenance and replacement. Also, since the disinfection is local, any harmful microorganisms in the water pipes after the disinfection site will not be affected. 3. Ozonation (O3 treatment). Ozone is generated from normal molecular oxygen at high voltages. Ozone oxidizes most organic materials, thereby destroying most pathogens.

Notably, many personal hygiene products contain endocrine-disrupting compounds. 34 2. WHAT CAUSES AQUATIC CONTAMINATION? 5 Paper- and Pulp-Mill Wastewater The toxicity of effluents of paper and pulp mills built with northern European standards has decreased markedly because of decreased dependence on chlorine bleaching and more efficient cleaning of effluents. Also, modern paper and pulp mills typically reuse more than 90% of their water. Since chlorine bleaching is virtually completely abolished, the presence of, for example, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) has decreased markedly in areas like the Baltic Sea.
