Water matrixes

The term water matrix refers to the composition of a water or wastewater with respect to major constiutents including dissolved ions, gross organics (BOD/COD/TOC), total dissolved solids and suspended materials such as turbidity or total suspended solids.  Understanding the water matrix is important because this can influence persistence of pathogens and the ability of treatment processes to remove them.
