More detailed discussions on the principles of coagulation and process optimization are presented elsewhere (Edzwald and Van Benschoten, 1990; Edzwald, 1993; Gregor et al., 1997; Edzwald and Tobiason, 1999; Pernitsky, 2003; Eikebrokk et al., 2006; Dempsey, 2006; Pernitsky and Edzwald, 2006; Edzwald and Kaminski, 2009; AWWA, 2011a, 2011b; Edzwald and Haarhoff, 2012; Davis and Edwards, 2014). Low to zero organic carbon removals are reported for certain periods. As NOM concentrations can rapidly increase four- to five-fold during storm events, it is important that water utilities have a good understanding of NOM's impact on coagulant dosing (Edzwald, 1993; Pernitsky, 2003; Hurst et al., 2004; McVicar et al., 2015; James et al., 2016). The extent of shielding is more likely to depend on the particle type (e.g., size, structure, chemical composition), the number of large particles (e.g., ≥25 µm), the level of pathogen aggregation with particulate matter and the desired inactivation level than on the turbidity level (Caron et al., 2007; Hargy and Landry, 2007; Templeton et al., 2008; Kollu and Örmeci, 2012). It can be applied in two ways: slurry applications using powdered activated carbon (PAC) or fixed bed reactors with granular activated carbon (GAC) (AWWA, 2011a). Pergamon Press. Lautenschlager, K., Hwang, C., Liu, W-T., Boon, N., Köster, O., Vrouwenvelder, H., Egli, T. and Hammes, F. (2013). Adapted from Stevenson, 1982; Thurman, 1985; Edzwald, 1993; Imai et al., 2001; Leenheer and Croué, 2003; Reckhow et al., 2007; Amy, 2008; Bond et al., 2011, Hydrophilic acids can also be reported as transphilic NOM (Martin-Mousset et al., 1997). AWWA Research Foundation and American Water Works Association, Denver, Colorado. Many organic amendments also provide some additional nutrients to the soil, although the organic matter is not considered fertilizer. Van der Wielen and van der Kooij (2013) observed that gene copies of L. pneumophila were sporadically found in unchlorinated distributed water from surface water and groundwater treatment plants with AOC levels above 10 µg/L and were not observed in systems with AOC levels below 5 µg/L.

Thus, at pH > 7 a four-fold increase in the coagulant dose is necessary to overcome NOM's negative charge compared with that required at pH 5.5. Thus, coagulation should be viewed as an "integrated" process that considers both NOM and particles (i.e., turbidity) while having regard to their different coagulation characteristics (Edzwald and Haarhoff, 2012). Arsenic and old pipes - A Mysterious Liaison: Well water disinfection sparks surprises. Online monitoring tools for NOM include TOC, DOC, UV absorbance/transmittance and COD; for particle destabilization they include zeta potential or streaming current (Conio et al., 2002; Newcombe and Dixon, 2006; AWWA, 2011b).

Collectively, the full-, pilot- and bench-scale results indicate that membrane treatment can be effective when the membrane pore size is optimized for NOM removal (≈200-300 Da). Water Res., 45(16): 5161-5170. Fulvic acids represent a more complex mixture of low molecular weight compounds that are more hydrophilic than humic acids, and they have a significant impact on the required coagulant dose (see section B.4.2.1).

The source-to-tap or water safety plan approach, which includes careful selection of the highest quality water source and source water protection, is an accepted approach to manage risks to drinking water safety (O'Connor, 2002; CCME, 2004; WHO, 2012). J. Bartram, J., Cotruvo, J., Exner, M., Fricker, C. and Glasmacher, A. Source-specific treatability studies are recommended to determine the most effective treatment option(s) to adequately remove NOM and to meet water quality goals related to microbial risks, DBPs, biological stability and corrosion control. (1984). J. Toxicol. Coagulation involves two primary mechanisms: one consists of charge neutralization and the formation of insoluble precipitates; the other involves adsorption onto aluminum or ferric hydroxide floc (i.e., sweep coagulation) (Dempsey et al., 1984). Sc. Its presence may also create conditions that result in increased lead and/or copper concentrations in treated water due to its influence on corrosion. Bellamy, W.D., Hendricks, D.W. and Logsdon, G.S. 25(2): 323-333. It is well known that NOM exerts a chemical oxidant demand (i.e., chlorine, chlorine dioxide, ozone) that must be overcome before pathogen log inactivation requirements can be met (AWWA, 2011a; MWH, 2012). 479-498. Investigation of assimilable organic carbon (AOC) and bacterial regrowth in drinking water distribution systems. Graham, N.J.D. Autochthonous NOM tends to be hydrophilic in nature and nitrogen-rich.

DOC is generated by the production and decomposition of the microbial and plant biomass within water sources (Nguyen et al., 2002; Zhou et al., 2014). 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). Organic matter contributes to greater amounts of water retention following rains because it improves soil structure and thereby improves water-holding capacity. Dalva and Moore, 1991; Kalbitz et al., 2000; Aitkenhead-Peterson et al., 2003.

Modeling critical infrastructure inter-dependencies: Considering drinking water treatability for climate change adaption. Removal of humic substances by adsorption/ion exchange. Health A, 49(14): 1615-1622. Ion exchange can effectively remove charged NOM compounds of small and large molecular weights, making it generally more effective than coagulation; however, similar to coagulation, ion exchange is less effective at removing neutral (e.g., uncharged) hydrophilic compounds (Kim and Symons, 1991; Bolto et al., 2002; 2004; Parsons et al., 2007; Cornelissen et al., 2008; Humbert et al., 2008). In general, strategies to improve biostability and minimize biofilm development in the distribution system and premise plumbing include optimized NOM removal, maintaining an effective disinfectant residual, maintaining low levels of biostability indicators in treated water (e.g., AOC, BDOC, biofilm formation rate), controlling corrosion and managing water temperatures (e.g., optimize storage facility turn-over rates; install mixers to prevent thermal stratification).

Thus, operator training is also needed to ensure the effective operation of treatment barriers at all times (Smeets et al., 2009). Evaluation of riverbank filtration as a drinking water treatment process. Eng., 17(3): 66-72. As humic and fulvic acids are important DBP precursors, adequate colour removal may be necessary to meet DBP guidelines (Chaulk, 2015). U.S. EPA (2016). Am. Introduction. and Andrews, R.C. As the pH of minimum solubility is higher at lower temperatures, a higher coagulant dose may be needed to overcome the more negative charge on NOM with the lower positive charge on coagulant hydrolysis products, as noted above. J. Aspartic acid, histidine, asparagine, tryptophan. First and foremost, NOM can contribute indirectly to health impacts in many ways, including: it exerts a coagulant demand which can lead to suboptimal coagulation conditions and a deterioration of pathogen log removal capability; it exerts a chemical disinfectant demand or interferes with ultraviolet (UV) disinfection which can lead to a deterioration of pathogen log inactivation capability; it forms regulated and non-regulated disinfection by-products (DBPs) when it reacts with disinfectants; it favours the development of distribution system biofilms that can harbour pathogens; and.

When allochthonous inputs are high, such as in coloured water sources or during precipitation/snowmelt events (i.e., stormflow conditions), the proportion of autochthonous NOM tends to be low. Water Works Assoc., 94(6): 97-111. Water treatment and examination, 23: 234-243. It is argued that the the literature on this subject has been misconstrued and that the consensus view is wrong.

Total Environ., 488-489(1): 36-45. (2004). 341-359. Selection of anionic exchange resins for removal of natural organic matter (NOM) fractions. The water industry has been investigating the benefits of more rapid methods that use adenosine triphosphate (ATP) measurements or flow cytometry technology (Hammes et al., 2012; Besmer et al., 2014; Nescerecka et al., 2014; Pharand et al., 2014; Gilmore and Summers, 2015; Liu et al., 2015; van der Kooij et al., 2015; Besmer and Hammes, 2016; Elhadidy et al., 2016). Therefore, when a coagulant is added, the NOM acts as a ligand that complexes the positively charged metal ions, exerting a coagulant demand that must be overcome before flocculation can occur (Edzwald and Haarhoff, 2012). Factors influencing the formation and relative distribution of haloacetic acids and trihalomethanes in drinking water. APHA/AWWA/WEF (2017). and Hofmann, R. (2008). Organic matter and copper corrosion by-product release: A mechanistic study. Fettig (1999) reported that the non-removable fraction of NOM by full-scale ion exchange treatment plants could vary from < 10% to around 40%. Tech., 40(9): 215-221. Full-scale prechlorine removal: Impact on filter performance and water quality. Alternatively, the lack of a correlation may be due to the presence of NOM that has low UV absorbance (e.g., proteins, sugars) or a high nitrate content, which may interfere with this measurement (Leenheer and Croué, 2003).
