Yeah.

If the flow rate through the UV is slow enough, it will kill just about anything that travels through it. You just want to make sure the UV is sized appropriately for the amount of water you want to run through it....and like I said, you want to run it slow.
Most good UV manufacturers will include two flow ratings on their UV Sterilizers, a water clearing (algae) rate (which will be higher) and a sterilization flow rate, (which will be slower) and you might want to go a bit slower than that one...
