Water treatment plants consist of numerous treatment processes in series and in parallel. The operation of the present-day infrastructure is done by operators who mainly focus on providing the required flow and quality at all times. It is obvious that it is possible to achieve better results at lower costs and with less impact on the environment by utilizing available options such as buffer tanks, equal flow distribution over process units, flow control and process control. By using computer models it is now also possible to control the water quality leaving the treatment plant while delivering the required flow and quality.
