Abstract In April 1990 Antwerpse Waterwerken brought a new DAF-plant into operation at the production centre Notmeir-Walem. The flotation unit, which has a capacity of 200,000 m3/d, was integrated in one of the two existing treatment lines. Its main objective was to eliminate the important raw water quality fluctuations caused by increasing algal growths. During the past ten years several optimisation studies were carried out which resulted in a further simplification of operation and mechanical design. This paper will focus mainly on the integration of dissolved air flotation in the entire treatment line, the consequences on the dual layer filtration and the operational experience and information gathered during the past decade.
