Report of the effectiveness of membrane treatment over conventional coagulation/media filtration for pretreating feedwater for reverse osmosis desalination. Test parameters were elinimation of particulates and microbes in order to improve reverse osmosis performance, lower operating cost and increase mebrane life. Membrane treatment found to be less costly.
