Abstract

This paper investigates the best attainable treatability to which a water polluted with a technologically significant concentration of organic matter is treatable by different cation-active polyelectrolytes and their blends with mineral coagulants in comparison to that attainable by traditional hydrolysing coagulants. The negative influence of these reagents used as primary coagulants on the treated water quality is demonstrated in the case of Saulspoort Waterworks.
