Various methods can be used in operating a water treatment plant. It is desirable to produce good quality water as efficiently and economically as possible. This study evaluates each phase of operation at the Newport News (Lee Hall} water treatment plant for overall efficiency.

This study begins by giving a detailed description of the Lee Hall water treatment plant. The description includes sources of water, a description of each treatment process, a plan view of the treatment plant, and a flow diagram of the treatment plant.

Based on the raw water data, flow rates, and the treatment plant characteristics, the study deals with each treatment process at the Lee Hall water treatment plant by describing different parameters for the existing operational methods and suggestions for improved operational efficiency. Conclusions and recommendations are provided which are based on the conditions and considerations as described.
