Tastes and odours can be caused by volatile compounds produced by the microbial biomass (e.g., actinomycetes, cyanobacteria, fungi) that is washed in from the terrestrial environment or is naturally present in the aquatic system/aquifer (Hrudey et al., 1992; Zaitlin and Watson, 2006; AWWA, 2011a). COD decreases across each treatment process. (2014). Water Res., 49: 434–443. Bellamy, W.D., Silverman, G.P., Hendricks, D.W. and Logsdon, G.S. AOC is often used as the method to predict bacterial regrowth, as it returns a value that corresponds to a bacterial count (Escobar and Randall, 2001). (2000). It has been suggested that the AOC:BDOC ratio can be used as an indication of the relative biological stability of the biodegradable organic compounds present in drinking water (Escobar and Randall, 2001). natural organic matter.

The concept of SUVA has been developed as an operational indicator of NOM character and coagulation effectiveness for NOM removal (Edzwald and Van Benschoten, 1990; Edzwald and Tobiason, 1999). COD: because COD only measures oxidizable organic matter, a highly reactive source with 2 mg/L TOC and a less reactive source with 4 mg/L TOC can have comparable COD concentrations (Stoddart and Gagnon, 2014; Dabrowska, 2016).

Distribution system optimization is a complex process involving numerous concomitant goals (e.g., microbial, DBPs, corrosion, physical integrity). NOM has been shown to affect lead and copper corrosion (Korshin et al., 1996, 2000, 2005; Edwards and Sprague, 2001; Dryer and Korshin, 2007; Liu et al., 2009; Valentine and Lin, 2009; Schock and Lytle, 2011; Arnold et al., 2012; Zhou et al., 2015; Masters et al., 2016).

NOM can provide a protective film, decreasing corrosion (especially over a long timeframe), or it can increase corrosion through a variety of mechanisms: 1) NOM could complex with calcium ion and prevent protective scale formation; or 2) NOM could act as a food source for microorganisms, which could in turn attack the pipe surface and increase corrosion (Schock and Lytle, 2011). In full-scale treatment facilities in Nova Scotia, TOC removal was approximately 46% for a direct filtration plant, and ranged from –12% to 82% and from 1% to 77% for the conventional and DAF treatment plants, respectively.

Develops and demonstrates techniques for isolation and characterization of natural organic matter. (eds.). It is well known that NOM exerts a chemical oxidant demand (i.e., chlorine, chlorine dioxide, ozone) that must be overcome before pathogen log inactivation requirements can be met (AWWA, 2011a; MWH, 2012). NOM characteristics have also been observed to be important for lead and copper release (Willison and Boyer, 2012) and inconsequential for lead (Dryer and Korshin, 2007).

An effective NOM control strategy is required to meet concomitant water quality goals related to microbial protection, DBPs, biological stability and corrosion control (Brown and Cornwell, 2011). (1985). Water Works Assoc., 84(5): 80–90. Given the importance of coagulation chemistry to ensure pathogen log removals, water utilities should consider both NOM and turbidity when defining optimum pH and coagulant dose conditions (Edzwald, 1993; Edzwald and Tobiason, 1999; Edzwald and Haarhoff, 2012). and Edwards, M. (2014). and Adams, H.E. Water Research Foundation, Denver, Colorado. J. Drink. Biodegradable organic matter in drinking water treatment and distribution. IWA Publishing, Oxford, United Kingdom. In general, if UV254 removal is greater than DOC removal, it can be concluded that the process is preferentially removing high molecular weight and hydrophobic NOM that absorbs UV light; an increase in SUVA after treatment indicates that the process is removing more DOC relative to the reduction in UV absorbance (Lamsal et al., 2012). 74–77. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0021884. Allochthonous NOM is exported to aquatic environments as precipitation moves through the atmosphere and vegetative canopy, infiltrates organic soil layers and percolates downward through mineral soil layers (Aitkenhead-Peterson et al., 2003). Watson, S.B. (1997). The authors reported that the method could be used at water treatment plants to rapidly assess raw water quality, adapt treatment processes and verify treatment performance. Bromide, in particular, has been shown to increase DBP formation rates three- to ten-fold (Symons et al., 1993; Westerhoff et al., 2004; Heeb et al., 2014). Water Res., 34(11): 2861–2868.

(2017) compared three prepackaged solid phase extraction cartridges for the isolation of hydrophobic and hydrophilic fractions from three surface waters in Manitoba. LeChevallier, M.W. Autochthonous NOM tends to be hydrophilic in nature and nitrogen-rich. The concentration and/or character of NOM can have a significant influence on the selection, design and operation of water treatment processes. Dalva, M. and Moore, T.R. BDOC refers to the portion of DOC available to be utilized by heterotrophic bacteria (Escobar and Randall, 2001). Am. Generally NOM can be divided into two fractions 1) the Hydrophilic fraction which is more soluble in water and 2) the Hydrophobic fraction which is less soluble. Water Res., 52: 199–207. Natural organic matter (NOM) is an extremely complex mixture of organic compounds and is found in all groundwater and surface waters. Increasing iron concentrations in surface waters—A factor behind brownification? City of Ottawa, Ontario. and Sinsabaugh, R.L. (2015). No correlations have been observed between fouling and the following: It is hypothesized that once fouling is initiated by biopolymers, a decrease in electrostatic forces allows hydrophobic NOM to adsorb to the membranes, resulting in further fouling (Peldszus et al., 2011; Croft, 2012; Chon and Cho, 2016). The … (1999). Depending on the size and shape of NOM, which is influenced by the pH and ionic strength of the water (Ghosh and Schnitzer, 1980), some compounds can exhibit both hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties (i.e., amphipathic) (Leenheer and Croué, 2003) and possess both negative- and positive-charged functional groups (i.e., amphoteric) (Her et al., 2007; Amy, 2008). The document is being made available for a 60-day public consultation period. Programs and policy development – Health Canada, Part A. During a typical rainfall event, SUVA increased from 2.6 L/mg∙m to 4.5 L/mg∙m within 12 h, indicating that hydrophobic, allochthonous NOM was being flushed into the source from the terrestrial watershed. Actual DBP concentrations measured in the distribution system provide a good indication of the reactivity of NOM. Kent, F.C., Montreuil, K.R., Stoddart, A.K., Reed, V.A. Sinsabaugh and Findlay, 2003; Eikebrokk et al., 2004; Ågren et al., 2007, Quarterly (measure DOC on same day to calculate specific DBP yields to assess NOM reactivity), In accordance with corrosion control program, Zeta potential or streaming current-when NOM controls or influences coagulant dose. Water Research Foundation, Denver, Colorado. It is generally accepted that the hydrophilic neutral fraction of NOM, comprising polysaccharides and proteins in macromolecular and/or colloidal form (i.e., biopolymers), is responsible for membrane fouling (Carroll et al., 2000; Cho et al., 2000; Fan et al., 2001; Kimura et al., 2004; Lee et al., 2006; Her et al., 2007; Amy, 2008; Kennedy et al., 2008; Hallé et al., 2009; Peldszus et al., 2011; Croft, 2012; Chen et al., 2014; Kimura et al., 2014; Rahman et al., 2014; Siembida-Lösch et al., 2014, 2015; Yamamura et al., 2014; Chon and Cho, 2016). (2015). During this period, SUVA ranged from 1.40 L/mg∙m to 10.51 L/mg∙m. These sources tend to be more susceptible to changes in NOM due to the direct interaction these waters have with the surrounding environment. (eds.). Thurman, E.M. (1985).
