  • 2. 
    What is the purpose of the LFOM?
    • A. 

      To maintain a linear relationship between water height and flow in the plant

    • B. 

      To control the flow rate of the plant

    • C. 

      To mix the coagulant with the raw water

    • D. 

      All of the above

  • 3. 
    True or False: The chemical dose controller regulates the amount of coagulant that is added to the raw water.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 4. 
    The rapid mix pipe
    • A. 

      Sends water from the entrance tank to the flocculator

    • B. 

      Obtains adequate mixing of the coagulant with the raw water

    • C. 

      Replaces conventional rapid mix units which require a lot of energy

    • D. 

      All of the above

  • 5. 
    True or False: The goal of flocculation is to cause particles to break apart
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    In a vertical flocculator, water flows over and under baffles, creating a velocity gradient that forces particles in the water to collide.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    True or False: The floc weir controls the height of the floc blanket 
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 8. 
    How does the settled water flow into the stacked rapid sand filter?
    • A. 

      The water flows through four inlet pipes, filtered through one layer of sand, and then leaves through an adjacent pipe

    • B. 

      The water flows into the top of the filter, trickle down through all the layers of sand, then leaves through the bottom pipe

    • C. 

      The water flows into the bottom of the filter, moves up through all the layers of the sand, and exits from a pipe at the top of the filter box

  • 9. 
    What is the purpose of a ram pump as part of an AguaClara plant?
    • A. 

      To raise a small portion of treated water to a higher elevation

    • B. 

      To fill the chemical stock tanks with water

    • C. 

      To reduce the burden placed on the plant operator

    • D. 

      All of the above

  • 10. 
    What are the significant differences between the AguaClara water treatment systems that have been implemented in Honduras and those which have been implemented thus far in India?
    • A. 

      The systems in Honduras contain an entire treatment train while the systems implemented in India consist of only a filter and doser.

    • B. 

      The systems in India treat well water while the systems in Honduras treat surface water.

    • C. 

      The systems in India treat a lower flow rate of water than the systems in Honduras.

    • D. 

      All of the above
