Chlorine is a strong oxidizing agent and deactivates microorganisms by breaking through the cell membrane. Chlorine was first added to drinking water systems in the 19th century to combat diseases such as cholera. Since then chlorine has been widely adopted as a disinfectant across multiple applications. As with all disinfectants, monitoring of residuals and dosing is important to ensure that levels are not too high or low.
Chlorine levels are routinely monitored to ensure that water in applications such as drinking water, swimming pools, and produce washing is free of harmful bacteria.
