Golden Nematode

I am trying to find information on the 'Golden Nematode'. We are in the 
process of designing a waste water treatment plant which will involve 
recycling the collected waste water as fertilizer to be used on crops it 
was collected form. The area of collection has shown signs of being 
contaminated, and therefore so would the collected waters going to the 
treatment plant. Apparently conventional water treatment processes 
(Chlorination etc.) do not kill the nematode cyst. A temperature of 80 C 
must be reached to successfully kill the pathogen. This could prove to be 
very costly in the design of a water treatment plant. Does anyone know of 
a treatment method (chemical?) which is effective on Golden Nematode 
(Globodera Rostochien)?

Thanks, Felix Candela
