In the study, 160 raw water samples collected throughout the United States were examined for chlorine demand, turbidity, and other chemical parameters to determine whether these parameters were interrelated. Eighty-nine of these samples were examined over a 1-week period to determine the stability of the turbidity values over 1, 3, and 7 days. Changes in turbidity were on the order of 77% of samples in the range of 0.05 to 1 ntu; 90 percent of samples in the 1 to 5 ntu range; and 96% of those >5.0 ntu. In some cases, more than a 200% change in turbidity is reflected.
