WATER QUALITY CONTROL USING INTAKE TOWERS IN
BRĂDIȘOR RESERVOIR, ROMANIA
Florian MARTAN, Daniel UNGUREANU
ABSTRACT. – This article presents a study, which describes a clear comparison and analysis of the raw water quality parameters taken from different levels of Brădișor reservoir using intake towers based on raw water analyses taken during the years 2015-2019. The design of the intake towers structure has a significant influence on water quality. The basic function of intake structure is to help in safely withdrawing water from the source and then to discharge this water into the discharge pipe, through which it reaches the water treatment plant or to other utilities. The structure of intake towers is vertical, with one or more opening gates located at different depths, used for extracting water from lake taking into account the quality of raw water.
