Appendix L: Sample Introductions to Final Reports 370 Sample 1 Introduction One of the ways water treatment plants measure the dirtiness of water is by using a turbidimeter. The turbidity is determined by measuring the refracted light from extremely small particles in the water such as bacterium, which range in size from 10-3 cm to 10-8 cm (Figure 1). Our team was asked to design a solution to a problem at the Kankakee water treatment plant: An in-line turbidimeter is becoming clogged and damaged due to large particles (from coarse sand to grass) flowing through it. Large particles (larger than 10-3 cm) also cause the turbidity rating of the water to become skewed. These problems cause a cascade of issues, including large
