Abstract

The accurate determination of chlorine in water is necessary for the efficient and economical operation of water treatment plants. The author is concerned and experienced with water supply purification. He is employed as Superintendent of Purification of the Sheboygan, Wisconsin Water Works. The author uses the usual methods of chlorine determination hourly, and is familiar with their limitations. An historical review of the development of chlorine residual determinations is proposed. The author believes a study of the electro-chemical properties of chlorinated water may indicate a better method of chlorine residual determination.
