How effective is settling in terms of water quality?

Where am I?

In KnowledgePoint you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Settling is variable with respect to removal of turbidity and microbiological contamination, and performance depends on initial water quality. For microbiological contaminants, removal rates are highest for protozoa and helminths and can exceed 90%. Removal of viruses and bacteria is inconsistent.  

Do you have any field experience with settling? Have you conduct any research on this topic? What were your findings? Could you share with us your experience and results?
