Pilot and lab tests were ran to prove effectiveness of HAOPs for removal of Natural Organic Matter (NOM) from surface waters. HAOP can be used as an adsobent in a precipitation method before MF (microlfiltration) or UF (ultrafiltration) or can be used as a coating on the membranes themselves. Effectiveness will be determined by improvement and stabilization of flux using backwash.
