The measurement of turbidity and suspended solids in wastewater

April 28, 2023
An introduction to the causes of turbidity in water, describing how turbidity is measured and how the measurement of turbidity can be used to infer the suspended solids content in water.
Turbidity is caused by material suspended in the water, which can scatter or absorb light traveling through the water. The measurement of this scattering or absorbed light is complex and significant in improving the process of identifying and removing suspended solids.
