The flocculation process allows the coagulated suspended solids to agglomerate into larger, settable particle masses that can then be effectively removed in the sedimentation basins. Without adequate flocculation, like at the Northeast WTP, a substantial amount of suspended solids and colloids will not settle and instead are loaded onto the downstream filters, which reduces filter runtime, efficiency and effectiveness.
