UNICEF and engineers from the Water and Sanitation Support Organisation from West Bengal have prepared these standard operating procedures for chlorination of groundwater-based piped water systems. It is based on field visits to to gain a thorough understanding of the piped water supply schemes and various factors that influence the concentration of free residual chlorine in distribution network. The team had carried out field-based studies to understand effectiveness of different disinfectants and accuracy of various field test kits to monitor residual chlorine onsite in order to come up with a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) on Chlorination.
This SOP on Chlorination has been conceptualized based on substantial information gathered, gaps identified and experience gained by the team. Each chapter has been prepared by the team in an effort to impart accurate, complete and current knowledge on chlorination. An Instruction Manual for Pump Operators in both Bengali and English has also been prepared for guidance.
