Chlorine has been used routinely in California water systems for 100 years. Chlorine not only kills bacteria in the water at the treatment plant but also continues to disinfect all the way into the facility and through to the tap.
Because of concerns about chlorine and its undesirable by-products formed in reaction to natural organic matter and the chemical compound bromide found in water, many wineries choose to use such alternatives as ozone or ultraviolet radiation; however, these approaches disinfect water only at the site of treatment, not throughout the distribution system--so there are some limitations to their effectiveness.
Heritage Systems is experienced in the operation and maintenance of Ultraviolet, Ozone and Chemical Disinfection platforms. Each of these disinfection approaches has monitoring and reporting requirements unique and specific to the type of disinfection.

Water is the most critical resource issue of our lifetime and our children’s lifetime. The health of our waters is the principal measure of how we live on the land.Luna Leopold
