Sources, production and regulation of allochthonous dissolved organic matter inputs to surface waters. Activated carbon is an absorbent material that provides a surface on which ions or molecules in the raw water can concentrate. 5-24. It should be noted, however, that some NOM fractions cannot be removed by coagulation at any pH or dose (Kavanaugh, 1978; Babcock and Singer, 1979; Owen et al., 1993, 1995; Volk et al., 2002; Chow et al., 2004, 2006; Carpenter et al., 2013). Studies indicate that the optimum MWCO for NOM removal is 0.2-0.3 kDa (Jacangelo et al., 1995, 1997; Bond et al., 2011; Sillanpää et al., 2015a). Environ. J. How, Z.T., Linge, K.L., Busetti, F. and Joll, C.A. In the absence of wetlands, DOC concentrations tend to increase relative to streamflow. Even 1% wetlands cover can influence DOC concentrations and character. Ion exchange processes may also remove some bromide from sources that have low alkalinity and sulphate concentrations, due to minimal competition for ion exchange sites (Singer et al., 2007). (2005). Rainfall and outbreaks of drinking water related disease and in England and Wales. (1997). Appl. In a review of the literature, Graham (1999) reported that with pre-ozonation, DOC and THM formation potential removals ranged from 18% to 55% and from 20% to 64%, respectively. Gregor, J.E., Nokes, C.J. Kuehn and Mueller (2000) reported that RBF decreased DOC and AOC concentrations by 27% and 63%, respectively. (1997). Summers et al. Wat. Removing Cryptosporidium by dissolved air flotation. (2015a) completed a statistical analysis of full-scale data for six water utilities and concluded that the most useful measures to assess biological stability were variability in disinfectant residual (measured by the coefficient of variation), biofilm formation rate (measured by ATP accumulated on mild steel coupons) and changes in corrosion rates (measured by linear polarization resistance using mild steel coupons). Geneva, Switzerland. Nature, 450(7169): 537--540. Technol., 19(9): 903-911. Humic and fulvic acids (a proportion of which is responsible for coloration) can be fairly effectively removed by flocculation-coagulation; however, the coagulant demand may be high; as a result, direct filtration can only eliminate 10 to 30%; on the other hand a 50 to 80% reduction is achievable in a complete clarification system with optimised coagulation and, if necessary, with PAC used in the settling tank; under these optimum conditions, the molecules responsible for coloration will usually be complete… and Billica, J.A.

Apparent colour applies to unfiltered samples and is a useful measure to assess the presence of iron and manganese oxides in the distribution system (Reiber and Dostal, 2000; Imran et al., 2005). Available at: https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/publications/healthy-living/guidelines-canadian-drinking-water-quality-guideline-technical-document-bromate.html, Health Canada (2019a). Ideally, the raw water should be continuously monitored to optimize the coagulant dose (Pernitsky, 2003; Newcombe and Dixon, 2006; Sharp et al., 2006; Shin et al., 2008). Chapter 48 in: Recent progress in slow sand and alternative biofiltration processes. Effects of filter operation on Cryptosporidium removal. In a few studies reviewed by the authors, differences between DCAA and trichloroacetic acid (TCAA) formation were reported (see Table 13). Worrall, F. and Burt, T.P. In: Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the American Water Works Association, New Orleans, LA. NOM can impact processes designed to remove or inactivate pathogens, contribute to the formation of disinfection by-products and favour the development of biofilms in the distribution system. Guidance documents are developed to provide operational or management guidance related to specific drinking water-related issues (e.g., boil water advisories), to make health risk assessment information available when a guideline is not deemed necessary. After many years of research, it is generally accepted that all NOM fractions contribute to DBP formation, although some fractions form more DBPs than others (Hoehn et al., 1980; Croué et al., 1993; Owen et al., 1993, 1995; Martin-Mousset et al., 1997; Goslan et al., 2002; Liang and Singer, 2003; Hua and Reckhow, 2007a; Bond et al., 2014; Hua et al., 2014). Several studies have demonstrated that low-density NOM flocs are more amenable to flotation than to sedimentation (Plummer et al., 1995; Edzwald and Kelley, 1998; Edzwald et al., 1999, 2000, 2003; Harrington et al., 2001; Edzwald, 2010; Gregory and Edzwald, 2011). Physical factors (such as mixing of the coagulant and mixing conditions in the flocculator) can affect floc formation; in most cases, however, the coagulation chemistry controls the process (Kavanaugh, 1978; Vadasarukkai and Gagnon, 2015; Vadasarukkai, 2016). Bond, T., Goslan, E.H., Parsons, S.A. and Jefferson, B. The apparent contradictory effects of NOM on copper release were further explored by Edwards and Sprague (2001). Sci. Metrics and methods for MF/UF system optimization. Technol., 27(11): 21-35.

Black and Christman (1963) reported that 87% of the compounds responsible for colour in 10 U.S. sources were colloidal and 3.5-10 nm in size. As a result, it is very important that jar testing and DBP formation potential testing be performed to determine the feasibility of optimized coagulation for NOM removal. (2002).

(2017), the authors observed that the presence of humic acid increased lead release from lead coupons as a result of both uniform and galvanic corrosion. COD decreases across each treatment process. Warnecke, M. (2006). Impact of shear stress and pH changes on floc size and removal of dissolved organic matter (DOM). In: Proceedings of the 4th Gothenburg Symposium, Madrid, Spain. A number of studies have characterized the six NOM fractions (see Table 3) found in several Canadian source waters (Montreuil, 2011; Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Environment and Conservation, 2011; Lamsal et al., 2012; Goss and Gorczyca, 2013). An increase in the frequency and severity of algal growth and cyanobacterial blooms is forecast to be associated with these changes (van der Linden et al., 2018). Available at: https://uwspace.uwaterloo.ca/handle/10012/7107. As a result, oxidation processes are generally used for disinfection, taste and odour control and degradation of target organic contaminants.

The concentration and character (i.e., chemical, physical and biodegradability properties) of NOM can be highly variable because of the numerous hydrological and biogeochemical processes that affect the sources of NOM (Aiken and Cotsaris, 1995). The authors suggested that NOM removal accelerated the natural ageing process. Water utilities considering RBF should be aware that the oxygen demand created by the biodegradable NOM and other contaminants such as ammonia can change redox conditions and cause the dissolution of manganese, which may require treatment (Appelo and Postma, 1996). Biogeochemistry, 84(2): 115-129. (2003). In general, the longer the retention time the lower the DOC concentration, due to biogeochemical processes that degrade and adsorb DOC. Wat. National long-term water quality monitoring data. Limited publications have measured this aspect, and the numerical values reported have varied from site to site (Camper, 2014). Oxidation processes include ozone, chlorine dioxide and advanced oxidation processes such as ozone/UV, ozone/H2O2, UV/H 2O2, and Fenton's reaction. Water Res., 104: 340-348. de la Rubia, A., Rodriguez, M., León, V.M. As a result, a tight NF membrane is required to remove the majority of DBP precursors, as shown in Figure 1. Other factors that influence membrane fouling include membrane characteristics (e.g., type of membrane, pore size distribution, material, surface charge, hydrophobicity), operating conditions (e.g., flux, recovery, pretreatment, backwashing, chemical cleaning), and water quality (e.g., pH, ionic strength, concentration and character of the foulants) (Amy, 2008; Huck and Sozański, 2011). The guideline technical documents for THMs and HAAs specify that water utilities should make every effort to maintain concentrations as low as reasonably achievable.

(eds.). Water Research Foundation, Denver, Colorado. Water Works Assoc., 123(1): 15-31. 397-405. (1980). Biological treatment involves targeting the removal of the BOM fraction that encourages biofilm growth in the distribution system (section B.4.1.3) and increases chlorine demand (section B.5.2.2) (Prévost et al., 1998). Compound classes within these fractions have also been identified. Norton, C.D., LeChevallier, M.W. (2013a). Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General (ISBN 0-7794-25600X).

Water Works Assoc., 77(4): 122-131. (1985). Water Res., 38(3): 547-558. These data demonstrate that TOC concentrations and organic colour vary spatially and tend to be lower in groundwater (although some groundwater sources can have elevated concentrations). This level of removal, however, is generally not sufficient to comply with DBP drinking water guidelines (Pyper, 1985; Collins et al., 1991; Graham, 1999), particularly in winter when low temperatures reduce biological activity (Collins et al., 1992). Abrasion of GAC particles should also be considered, as abrasion can lead to the loss of GAC material and stratification within the bed, both of which are undesirable (Gibert et al., 2013b). The measurement of UV254 has historically been used in the water industry (Edzwald et al., 1985). and Miltner, R.J. (2001). Technol., 20(10): 1028-1032. However, the presence of humic acid particles and coagulants has been shown to significantly affect UV disinfection efficacy, with lower inactivation levels being achieved. Chapter 9 in: Water quality and treatment. EPA/600/S2-85/052. For the last 50 years, the consensus view among researchers has been that organic matter (OM) has little or no effect on the available water capacity (AWC) of soil.

This article was co-authored by our trained team of editors and researchers who validated it for accuracy and comprehensiveness. Goss and Gorczyna (2013) studied a river source in Manitoba and also observed significant temporal variability in the six NOM fractions but with fluctuations in DOC concentrations. Norton et al. Manufacturers usually specify a minimum UV transmittance below which the system will not function properly. International Organization for Standardization, Geneva, Switerzland. Caron, E., Chevrefils Jr., G., Barbeau, B., Payment, P. and Prévost, M. (2007). Thus, changes in NOM may go undetected and a deterioration in pathogen log removal or inactivation may occur if appropriate monitoring is not in place. Gimbel, R., Graham, N.J.D. (2012). Formation of haloforms during chlorination of natural waters. It is important that water utilities understand the source-specific reactivity of NOM when selecting a disinfectant, in order to mitigate the formation of potentially harmful DBPs (Hua and Reckhow, 2007a). and Hofmann, R. (2008). For example, a distribution system with a residence time of 7 days and temperature of > 15°C will require a different level of NOM removal to meet DBP guidelines than one with a residence time of 3 days and temperature of < 15°C (Rodriguez and Sérodes, 2001; Kastl et al., 2016). Water Works Assoc., 94(4): 149-160. Eikebrokk et al. The authors found no trends between DOC and increasing temperature or atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. Ideally, continuous online monitoring should be used for highly variable sources (i.e., those that fluctuate with precipitation/snowmelt events) and critical processes (e.g., coagulation). Engineered biological filtration involves the use of granular media filters (i.e., anthracite/sand or GAC) without the maintenance of a disinfectant residual across the bed.
