    Surface Water Treatment Overview

    • Surface Water Quality:  rivers, lakes, algae, turbidity, EDCs, distribution WQ
    • Traditional Treatment Technologies: in-line, direct, conventional, slow sand
    • High Rate Clarification: ozone and biological filtration
    • Multiple Barriers

    Rapid Mixing, Coagulation and Flocculation Technologies

    • What Coagulation Chemicals do: charge neutralization, agglomeration, van der waals forces, alternative coagulants: aluminum salts, iron salts, polymers, pre-hydrolized aluminum salts
