Justification of the modern technology of disinfecting drinking water instead of chemically hazardous liquid chlorine provides justification for today’s technology to the disinfection of drinking water intake facilities to replace traditional active and widely used liquid chlorine, which is a toxic substance and chemical reagent and kontseragenno dangerous to humans. The proposed advanced technology is technically, environmentally and chemically safe, based on local raw materials in the area of water intake, unlike chlorine, which is transported from the producer to the water treatment facilities, as well as the possession of which has a high risk to the environment.

Key words: Disinfection, Liquid chlorine, Drinking water.
