Benefits of mixing:

  • In the northern regions, mixing prevents ice damage
  • In clearwells, better mixing can provide the basis for increased contact time, thus allowing the City to reduce the chlorine and reduce the magnitude of a TTHM problem
  • Ensures uniformity of disinfectant
  • Reduces short circuiting and provides uniform water age
  • Mixing in storage tanks results in less chlorine being needed at the plant, resulting in fewer disinfectant byproducts
  • Reduces the need for storage tank deep cycling
  • Reduces high heterotrophic plate counts
  • Finally, a good mixer allows the tank to be taken offline and go through breakpoint chlorination if ever needed to return the tank to good water quality.
