Performance of water treatment plants can be evaluated by a number of methods, including turbidity, particle counts, and Microscopic Particulate Analysis (MPA). MPA, including particle sizing, is performed on drinking water systems where some form of treatment, chemical or physical, exists between the natural water source and its distribution to the public. This analysis compares the type, size and quantities of bioindicators and particles found in the raw water to those found in the finished, or treated, water. This method can be used to evaluate filtration efficiencies, as log reduction, of conventional filtration systems, as well as on-site evaluation of alternate filtration technologies.
