The final stage in the process of sewage (wastewater) treatment involves disinfection of the wastewater by Ultraviolet (UV) lights. The UV disinfection process kills the bacteria. Seasonal disinfection means UV disinfection will continue during the spring, summer and fall period (April 1 to October 31), but not during the winter period (November 1 to March 31). Full screening of floatables and all other treatment processes will continue to operate year round.
