Polluted surface water and groundwater represent a significant humanhealth risk as it is a vehicle for a number of diseases derived from the exposition tountreated drinking water. Historically, chlorination became a great advance onreducing the impact of many pathogens associated with polluted drinking waterin developed countries, with the consequent benefits to societies growing andwelfare. Nevertheless, other treatments have been investigated during the lastdecades with the aim of increasing their capability for treating water and overcomingthe limitations of chlorination and other conventional technologies includingUVC radiation and ozone. Fenton and photo-Fenton process have been demonstratedto be a good option as alternative water disinfection process during the lastyears. The aim of this chapter is to briefly describe the fundamentals of this processwith special focus on particular aspects related to pathogens inactivation in water.Moreover, the most recent scientific contributions on the application of Fenton andphoto-Fenton for water disinfection are discussed.
