Summary in English
Coagulation is a safe and effective method of treating water, which improves its quality by reducing levels of organic compounds, dissolved phosphorus, colour, iron and suspended particles.

This publication provides information on the chemicals available for coagulation treatment.

Coagulation can be performed in dugouts, coagulation cells or by using commercial in-house coagulation systems. Four coagulation chemicals and one coagulant aid are commonly used in water treatment plants. Selection of the right chemical depends on which coagulation method is used.

A coagulation cell is a small, constructed reservoir that treats and stores water. It is sized to provide sufficient water for the farmstead during the winter. Another option is a commercially available in-house coagulation system, which uses a tank in a batch treatment process.
