GTL: Intelligent Source Water Intake

Source Water Monitoring and Controlled Raw Water Withdrawal

Lakes and impounded surface waters provide distinct challenges for drinking water treatment facilities.  Algae, Taste and Odor and Iron and Manganese can lead to significant negative public relations outcomes.

This paper addresses one such tool which is providing important reservoir water quality characteristics, reduced cost of treatment and risk management information for surface water users and treatment plant operators.
