Abstract: The aim of this study was to describe the potential impact of stratification, and therefore destratification, and inflow hydrodynamics on the raw water quality in drinking water reservoirs, from the perspective of NOM. Investigations of the changes in the concentration, character and removal of NOM by conventional treatment processes during inflow hydrodynamics and thermal stratification were performed using observational and manipulative experiments and empirical and process based modelling. Further conceptual models were developed in place NOM within the existing frameworks of reservoir management from the perspective of other water quality hazards.
