Removing the health hazard of pathogenic organisms is called disinfection. One kind of disinfection is sterilization, or the elimination of all life. Common methods of sterilization are heating, irradiating, and treating with chemicals. Even though germicidal chemicals can be costly, economics favor chemical treatment of drinking water over heat or irradiation because energy costs are very high for large volumes of water.
