To inform the public

Description:

This article provides a concise and abbreviated summary of AWWA Manual of Practice M53, Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration Membranes for Drinking Water, to serve as a quick point of reference. For convenience, the article’s organization matches that of M53, as follows: • water quality, • membrane science and theory, • system concepts, • microfiltration/ultrafiltration (MF/UF) manufacturers, • pilot testing, • design concepts, • operations, • system costs, • residuals characteristics and management, and • future trends. This article is not intended to address each subject comprehensively and thus should not be considered a stand-alone resource. More detailed information is provided in M53. Readers should refer to that manual for a more thorough discussion of each topic.
