Pasteurization

Supplemental Barrier


Pasteurization provides a robust disinfection process to kill bacteria, viruses and protozoa through heating the water. Working with public health experts over a period of two years, Ventura Water demonstrated the effectiveness of pasteurization for water disinfection. By putting pasteurization before the membrane filtration and reverse osmosis processes, we will be able to demonstrate benefits in performance, operations, and cost of a potable reuse system.

Pasteurization has been used in the food processing industry for decades (think milk). This process effectively makes the food we eat and the liquids we drink safe for consumption.
