Abastecimiento de agua potable de agua superficial en los anos noventa

Review of the historical development of surface water treatment, including recent innovations, with an outlook to future trends. The convential coagulation-chlorination process is no longer acceptable due to water quality problems associated with chlorination by-products and pesticides. Water quality and environmental criteria will tighten, requiring the development of a process scheme that can deal with the complex mixture of pollutants found in surface waters. A chemical process based on the application of advanced oxidation processes and chemical softening and a physical process based on application of nanofiltration are presented and evaluated as alternatives.

Abstract

Review of the historical development of surface water treatment, including recent innovations, with an outlook to future trends. The convential coagulation-chlorination process is no longer acceptable due to water quality problems associated with chlorination by-products and pesticides. Water quality and environmental criteria will tighten, requiring the development of a process scheme that can deal with the complex mixture of pollutants found in surface waters. A chemical process based on the application of advanced oxidation processes and chemical softening and a physical process based on application of nanofiltration are presented and evaluated as alternatives.
