This paper summarizes surveys of and discussions with multiple WTP operators of MF/UF-based plants about their full scale facilities, focusing on the frequency of fiber breaks and the associated costs for labor and repairs. Costs are presented in US Dollars. The data are normalized to reflect the relative usage by manufacturer to represent the actual distribution by membrane type.
