Water Treatment Plants are generally built for supplying drinking and utility water to medium and large-scale residential areas. Thanks to treatment plant designs made according to the characteristics of the water source (creeks, lakes, rivers, dams, etc.), treated water can be obtained at a desired quality level.
The steps to be applied in the process may vary since raw water quality, amount of water, distance to the source and seasonal changes are taken into account in design of the plant.
Depending on the water quality, the plant is made up of process units such as pre-chlorination, oxidation, physical treatment, chemical treatment, filtration, sedimentation, disinfection and sludge treatment. In order to provide hydraulic flow, gravity is made advantage of or intermediate pumping stations can be used according to the slope of the land where the plant will be installed.
Due to the provision of drinking and utility water, and the obligation to run on a 24/7 basis compared to other treatment processes; ease of operation, maintenance and use is provided through proper design and installing an automation system. The plant can be continuously operated at optimal conditions depending on raw water quality, thanks to laboratory-supported measurements.
