Description: CRREL Report
Abstract: A direct filtration, water treatment pilot plant was operated on the Kenai River at Soldotna, Alaska, during the summer of 1980. The purpose of the pilot plant operations was to determine the feasibility of the direct filtration process for removal of glacial sit. The major criterion used to determine feasibility was production of water containing less than 1.0 NTU of turbidity, For the range of raw water turbidities encountered (22-34 NTU), the pilot plant testing indicated that direct filtration was feasible and could be considered as an alternative to conventional water treatment plants containing sedimentation tanks.
