dc.description.abstract Natural organic matter removal (NOM) efficiencies of samples from three major drinking water sources (Elmali, Omerli, and Buyukcekmece) of Istanbul were compared using different treatment systems. Enhanced coagulation as a physico-chemical method was applied using ferric chloride and aluminum sulphate as the coagulating agents. Moreover, the application of enhanced coagulation in combination with photocatalytic oxidation using TiO2 was investigated. The efficiency of NOM removal relevant to each treatment step was assessed through DOC removal, UV254 removal, and fluorescence measurements. Irrespective of the treatment applied as enhanced coagulation, photocatalytic oxidation or their combinations, the highest removal efficiency was determined for Elmali followed by Omerli and Buyukcekmece samples both in terms of DOC and UV254. Enhanced alum coagulation leads to significant variation in DOC removals as 44%, 28% and 26% for Elmali, Omerli, and Buyukcekmece water samples, respectively. Upon application of ferric chloride as the coagulant, the DOC removals achieved were found to be slightly higher as compared to alum. Moreover, the combined treatment incorporating photocatalytic oxidation subsequent to alum coagulation leads to 36%, 37%, and 50% of DOC removal for Omerli, Buyukcekmece, and Elmali respectively. The improvement of removal efficiencies in combined treatment systems were scrutinized with an emphasis on induced water properties as supported by the specific fluorescence intensities of the samples.
