Water Quality Problems and Control Strategies for the Water Supply of Tianjin City

Conference paper


Water supply development must be concerned with both the quantity and quality of water required to meet the needs of man in an efficient and economical manner. The diversion of water from the Luan River into Tianjin is a vast urban water supply project. There are some obvious and potential pollution hazards for the drinking water supply, especially eutrophication is a serious problem and results in treating difficulties at the water supply plant. This paper attempts to provide information on this issue and to discuss the program of water quality conservation and management for the water supply of Tianjin based on various treatment techniques used in the basin, the reservoir and the water treatment plant.
