Results of a pilot (100 m(3)/h) investigation on ozone disinfection of municipal tertiary effluents for reuse in agriculture carried out at West Bari (S. Italy) treatment plant are presented. Among dosages, contact times and advanced treatment schemes investigated it was demonstrated that ozone disinfection results in the achievement of the WHO microbial guideline (1,000 CFU/100ml for Fecal Coliforms) for unrestricted wastewater reuse in agriculture of both clarified and clarified-filtered municipal secondary effluents; it is very effective towards Pseudomonas aeruginosa, rather effective towards Giardia lamblia and substantially ineffective towards Cryptosporidium parvum and it forms limited amount of DBP (approx. 350 ppb of total aldehydes). O&M costs amount to 37 Euro/1000m(3).
