Unformatted text preview: alum is 22.5 g/m 3 . However, if a linear relationship is not assumed and only the scope of the data is defined, then 15 g/m3 FeCl3 + 1 g/m3 polyelectrolyte is the most cost effective coagulant mix to attain a turbidity of 3 NTU. Interpolation of \$/m 3 : Interpolation between alum turbidity 2 and 3 NTU yields: cost = 0.00315 \$/m 3 . From cost, dose = 22.5 g/m 3.
