In general the actual suspended particle constituent of a drinking water source is not considered when a water plant is designed. Suspended solids and turbidity measures are used for design and monitoring plant processes. In the last few years considerable interest has developed in examining the particulate fraction more clearly. The Safe Drinking Water Committee of the National Academy of Science concluded that a survey of suspended particulate matter in raw and treated drinking water supplies in several typical communities was urgently needed as background information (NAS, 1977).
