This paper specifically discusses the success of implementing seasonal pretreatment adjustments by experienced operators with primary feedwater sources originating from the Bull Run Watershed in the Pacific Northwest, USA. Through careful monitoring of water parameters and the meticulous collection and review of normalized data, the Bull Run Watershed systems were able to maintain productivity throughout the year despite perpetual changes to their feedwater source. The paper describes how these plants were able to evaluate and optimize their pretreatment strategies in correlation with seasonal changes and how these strategies helped reduce costs and increase overall system productivity.
