Analysis of Water Treatment Plant Operation in Ilijaš Municipality

Suvada Šuvalija, Nedžad Mekić

Abstract

The operation of the Karašnica Water Treatment Plant, forming part of the water system in Ilijaš Municipality, in Bosnia and Herzegovina, is analysed in the paper. Two distinct water treatment lines are described and analysed. The first line consists of an internal circular settling tank and rapid sand gravity filters, while the second line consists of an external circular settling tank and pressure filters. In order to evaluate operating efficiency, a tour of the system facilities was made, interviews with the employees were conducted, the existing documentation was examined, and additional physicochemical and bacteriological analyses of appropriate water samples were conducted. Following analysis of all available data, appropriate conclusions and significant recommendations were made toward more efficient operation of the water treatment plant.

Keywords
