The first goal of the experiments was to study the behavior of the incoming flows (North and West in scenario 1, North and South in scenario 2) before leaving the cross junctions (sector A). Scenario 1 provides varying inflows, varying chlorine and NOM (natural organic matter) concentrations. Prior to that, flow control valves 1 and 2 (of sector A) were maintained partially opened (approximately 50 and 75% respectively) to provide flow rate of 0.50 and 1.14 L/s at North and West inlets, respectively (Table 3). Flow control valves (from 6 to 10 of sectors B and C) were totally opened.
