The purpose of this project is to:

  • review the major ion composition of waters considered to be a problem with regard to scale formation. This review will be based on existing data provided by Industry members
  • review methods for measuring the extent of scale formation and possible treatment approaches
  • provide recommendations on appropriate management actions based on the analysis of the potential extent of the scale problem and treatment options
  • Based on the research outcomes, it is intended to prepare a Stage 2 project outlining a comprehensive solution to address the problem of scaling in water supplies.
