The purpose of pre-design technological investigations is to define the water treatment technology for a new or existing water treatment plant. The investigation is performed on model-scale equipment, making sure that the results can be extrapolated to the technological scale. The investigation should allow for the determination of unit process parameters and ensure the desired outcome i.e. treated water meeting the applicable quality standards. Indirectly, the investigation results can also be used as a basis for defining the estimated scope of the investment, the costs of its execution and the future equipment operating costs. Technological investigations are carried out on the grounds of existing or future treatment plants in order to take into account the variable composition and quality indicators of the raw water to be treated. The pilot station, being the main element of the technological investigation, should be designed, built and operated with a view to the possibility of formulating further design guidelines after the study is completed. In this article, the authors share their experience related to the configuration of a pilot station used in an investigation of a groundwater treatment technology.
