ABSTRACT
The purpose of the article was to present research aimed to determine the spatial
distribution of the quality of the clear suspension in rectangular settling tank at the
Water Treatment Plant. For various indicators of quality of work of settling tank
suspension turbidity was chosen due to the fact that it is also normative indicator used to determine the quality of water. Based on studies, the distribution of turbidity in the settling tank was determined. This distribution can be used as a guide for the design and modernization of this kind of settling tanks which are used in the water treatment process. Turbidity is also a diagnostic indicator showing the operating status of settling tank and thus the whole process of the water treatment plant. The purpose of this article is to present the results of studies of turbidity in the interior of industrial settling tank in counter – current multiflux sedimentation variant and also to determine the level of suspension turbidity throughout the work area of settling tank.
