Water treatment technology selected by a utility should be able to improve the quality of raw water so that treated water quality meets Maximum Contaminant Level and quality goals. It must be affordable to build. The plant must be affordable to operate and often must be operated with part-time staff. The processes selected must not be so complex that engineers and chemists are required for process control, and continuing operating costs (materials and energy) must be reasonable. Treatment processes selected should be simple and easy to maintain, without an excess of complicated equipment and monitoring instruments. Finally, residues created in treatment should not present insurmountable problems of management and disposal.
